At summertime the Stockholm archipelago is packed with ferries that will bring you to many of the 30,000 islands around the capital of Sweden. The Stockholm archipelago is vast and covers 1,700 square kilometers (150 km from north to south and 80 km from east to west). It is a very popular tourist attraction to take an archipelago ferry for half a day or a full day from central Stockholm and visit one or multiple islands.
The June 2014 wallpaper brings vibrant natural spring colors to your desktop.
Springtime is undoubtedly one of the best periods in Sweden. When the country has defrosted and the snow and ice has melted you can enjoy the burst of colors in nature. Spring came early this year due to a mild winter.
The photo was taken early May this year in a park at Södermalm in Stockholm.

The MEP Baltic Sea Region Program is a non-partisan leadership program for youth in Estonia, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Norway, Russia and Sweden. The aim of the MEP Baltic Sea Region program is to develop interest and skills in addressing high level international issues jointly among high-school students in the 10 countries around the Baltic Sea. The program is a training ground for future leaders and politicians.

The May 2014 wallpaper was taken in Yngsjö in Skåne, the most southern province of Sweden. Yngsjö is nowadays most famous for it’s white beaches.
This small village at the coast of the Baltic sea with just over 300 inhabitants, however, was once famous for what has become known as “The Yngsjö murder”. In 1889 a young woman was murdered by her husband and his mother. Both perpetrators of the crime were sentenced to death and the mother became the last woman in Sweden to be executed.
