Nordiskamuseet

12th June,

Small cultural post, you should know before starting that the region of Stockholm has 85 museums.

I would not have the time or money to do all these museums but I will try to visit the most popular ones.

Let’s start with the Nordic Museet. It was not intended to be the first on the list but there were a long queue at the Vasa museum, so we turned back.

The museum, as its name indicates, traces the history of the Scandinavian population thanks to different themes such as home interiors, fashion, jewelry, folk art, textiles, home dolls …

The museum is very well explained and well organized.

How to get there?
Situated on the island of Djurgården, can be accessed via bus (line memory 44) via the tram from Sergel Torgs line 7 and walk after a stroll along the banks of Norrmalm.

address: 6-16 Djurgårdsvägen
P. O. Box 27820
SE-115 93 Stockholm
Sweden

How much does it cost?
100 sek for adults, students and over 65s

Reductions for children.

The “+”
audio guide included in the price

My opinion
Nice, less popular with tourists but not provided in-interesting. I recommend it especially for hardcore fans of history.

Stockholm countryside

5th June,

Stockholm is one of the few city (capital) that has keep that much green space completely natural.

Just take one of the many trains (pendeltåg) in order to end up in the middle of the campaign. You can also walk on the edges of the island of Sodermalm.

Here are some shots of Stockholm campaign.

Östermalms Saluhall

28th May,

Since 1888, Östermalms Saluhall in Stockholm inspires people and tourists with high quality food.

High quality ingredients are found there and ready meals from the Swedish and international cuisine. There are also restaurants.

How to get there?

Address: Östermalmstorg, 114 42 Stockholm, Suède

1 / metro

2 / bus

3 / walk

How much does it cost?
The price of food or meals is quite expensive. It takes an average of € 15 for a dish. Food is expensive but I would say the price varies depending on what you purchased.

The “+”
It is filled with Swedish typical dish of good quality.

Full of colors, it really blows away!

The “-“
There are many people and not just tourists. We also find that the rich Swedish who is doing his market.

Valborg i Stockholm

April 30th,

Today is the day when we celebrate Valborg in Sweden.

It is a party related to religion but especially to celebrate the arrival of spring. This is not a family event but an event in the city. During this evening, the city carries a huge fire. Everyone gathers around.

There is also entertainment such as singers, comedians, choreographer …

Stockholm for a weekend

Day 1

Departure: 8:00 am from the station towards Linköping Stockholm by bus (the cheapest, counted on average 150Kr for a ride).

Arrival: 11:00 to Stockholm Central Station.

Once we arrived we bought the bus/metro card to travel in the capital. The best deal if you make more than 7 trips it’s 72h unlimited card.

Once the card is purchased we can visit Stockholm toward the sights to see (thanks to the “Maria’s Guide”, one of my  corridormate she was Erasmus student in Stockholm).

We start towards Gamla Stan. The old Stockholm. Paved street, souvenir shop, The Royal Palace, Tyska kyrkan, Post-museum. Nice for walking. We saw the changing of the guard by luck (Saturday at noon). I do not know if it’s all Saturdays at noon …

Lunch was at Va Piano, (Thanks Maria), very nice place and not too expensive for a pizza or pasta.

To end the day, walk on Kungsholmen island: Stadshusset and the shores. Finally ride at Östermalm (pretty little square with a fountain). We ate in Sergels Torg street, not far from the station we found a mall with stalls of all nationalities to eat.
