on Friday, December 11, 2009 showed a smiling Barack Obama alongside his wife Michelle, waving to a crowd of onlookers from a balcony in Stockholm, Sweden. Obama had just given a riveting speech accepting the Nobel Peace Prize, and was greeting the myriad revelers below. The picture also has one more interesting facet. Just above the heads of the Obama family reads: The Grand Hotel
, one of the world's finest luxury hotels.

has hosted Nobel laureates since the first prize was given out in 1901. And with a string of international events on the horizon, including a few more of those Nobel ceremonies, you can rub shoulders with the world's elite on your next visit to Sweden.
