City-Sized Replica Built to Scale
The national hockey arena of Sweden is located at The Globe in Stockholm. Some people may be familiar with this magnificent arena, but they may not realize that it was constructed in a very specific location–on purpose! If you travel to Sweden, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for other globes scattered around the country.
These statues were strategically placed to create a city-scale model of the solar system. The Globen was constructed exactly where the sun would be, and each planet was proportioned correctly! In case you’re wondering, yes, there is a Pluto. The Swedish government didn’t forget to include the dwarf planet.
