Photograph by Donald McLeish SUNSET ON THE WATERS OF LAKE MALAREN In the distance, to the left, rises the Town Hall, and on the right the spire of the Riddarholm Church, Sweden's Temple ofFame, burial place of her kings and heroes. Here lies the nation's greatest monarch, in a sarcophagus whose sole inscription is:"Gustavus Adolphus Magnus." Close by rests at last that roving, restless military genius, the youthful Charles XII. In an adjoining chapel sleep those who have ruled Sweden since Napoleon's marshal, Bernadotte, established the present dynasty. The church is paved with tombstones.
