PICTURES: See stunning Stockholm from the sky
07:30 CEST+02:00
Want to see Stockholm like you've never seen it before? The Local's Matt Potter takes us on a picture gallery journey from a hot-air balloon ride on a clear day over the capital. But beware, if you're afraid of heights it may not be for you...

The Local's own Matt Potter is still beaming after a hot air balloon trip over the capital this week.

"Stockholm is a beautiful city from any angle, but seeing it from the sky was something truly memorable," he says.

Potter took the trip on Sunday, slowly drifting from Årsta in southern Stockholm to Universitetet in the north - all as the sun set over Sweden's capital.

On board with just a small handful of people, Potter says the trip is one he won't forget - but he doesn't recommend it for everyone.

"I'm not afraid of heights myself, but if you are, perhaps this isn't for you. Otherwise, get up there immediately - the good weather will soon be gone."
