This week we are traveling to Stockholm, having Milana (@norrskenet) as our tour guide. We were very excited from the first day about the launch of our short travelogues and after the amount of love we received for the guide of Turin by @vittomotta, we received many suggestions for new cities to explore. And here is Stockholm!
Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and it definitely has so many things to explore! It consists of 14 islands and it is surrounded by Lake Mälaren, at the entrance of archipelago. The stunningly beautiful nature is perfectly combined with the modern element, creating a destination that you cannot resist!
A walk to the Old Town, a visit to the Royal Palace, a look at the Abba museum, its amazing cafes, restaurants and bars, its vintage shops are all there, waiting for your visit. And don’t forget to have a fika, the meeting with friends at a café to enjoy your coffee and cake. It’s part of the Swedish culture and you don’t want to miss it with all those great cafes!
Let’s see what Milana has to show us!
The Old town in Stockholm is wondrous. Every alley is a story itself and a cinematographic masterpiece.
The Riddarholm church is perfect when you wanna travel back to the medieval ages, because it’s dating all the way back to the 13th century.
It won’t get any more New York than this in Stockholm. Cafe Egoiste is one of the most lovable little restaurants in the heart of Stockholm, their gigantic cinnamon buns are a must!
Wandering around Skansen is one of the most precious experiences you can have in this city. Skansen is the heart of Stockholm during summertime.
The flickering lights and the happy atmosphere of the amusement park Gröna Lund is best experienced during this late white northern summer nights.
I love running and being outdoors, and who wouldn’t if you could jog in the very garden of his royal highness, the King. The royal Palace is a public garden and got lots of beautiful surrounding to explore.
The narrow alleys of the Old Town makes a great playground for those merry little September sunrays.
A hidden gem in Stockholm is the botanical garden located near the Stockholm university. It’s so rural and genuine, definitely a source of inspiration.
The Museum of children’s book author Astrid Lindgren is a marvellous place. The restaurant is a child’s dream and don’t forget to try the chocolate bomb at the ice cream bar!
Rosendals Garden, an organic garden, an oasis in the middle of the city.
The royal island Djurgården is perfect those pale autumn strolls.
