The Local put a call out on Twitter for pictures of wintery scenes, and readers sent us some fantastic images. Here is a selection of some of the best.
The eastern Stockholm surburb of Lidingö was “100 percent winter wonderland”, according to resident and Local reader David Bertho, who posted these two pictures of the idyllic scene.
Juan Camilo Mesa sent some pictures of cars and bicycles in Sundbyberg.
Also in Sundbyberg, Anand Vijayaragavan posted this stunning picture of the rooftops of Solna taken from a distance.
As well as of snow hanging from the surrounding pines.
And of the thick snow covering the bicycles outside his apartment.
Over in central Stockholm, cars in Södermalm were covered in a thick crust of the white stuff, as pedestrians stumbled over slippery pavements.
Even the British ambassador Judith Gough posted a warning of what could happen to unattended bicycles.
