What does Spotify, Abba, Absolut Vodka, H&M and Volvo have in common? Exactly, they are all Swedish Brands. Scandinavia was appealing to me and I was excited to celebrate my 26th birthday in the Capial : Stockholm!
The trip was amazing and I absolutely fell in Love with the beauty and the vibe of Stockholm.
In todays Blog post I want to recommend you cool things I tried in Stockholm.
Facts about Sweden:
- Population of 9.5 mio people
- Sweden is a kindom
- Has his own currency > Krona
- Home of our beloved IKEA
This was the coolest bar I have been in so far! Tickets were not that cheap with 25 Euro per person but you will get a free non alcoholic or alcoholic cocktail. As you maybe know I dont drink alcohol, so I choosed the Non Alcohilc drink. You dont have to bring a thick jacket or gloves, because they provide you with some kind of cape, that looked absolutely ridiculos… but it kept me warm for about 20 minutes. But because I removed my gloves so often in order to take nice pictures, my hands started to freeze really quickly. No wonder with -5 degrees.
I would definetly recommend it.
The Vasa museum is one of the biggest attractions of Stockholm.
It was a retired swedish war ship that sank 1628. Over 300 years past unil the ship was found.
As you can see in the video above, the ship was very big. Mindblowing how people could build something like that hundreds of years before.
Whatch the sunset
There were a couple locations threwout Stockholm where we sat down and enjoyed the beutiful sunset. This picture was taken near the Royal Palace in the old town Gamla Stan.
Thankfully, Stockholm was not so crowded as I expected, so you could enjoy the sunset.
Alrrrriiiiigghhtt! When I tell you that these were the coolest things ever! My boyfriend kept talking about them and we decided to download the app from one of many E scooters Suppliers and tried them out. A-m-a-z-i-n-g. The usage was super simple and with 20 km/h pretty fast. Surprisingly, they belonged to the normal city scape and you saw people everywhere with them.
For routes under 15 minutes, there were pretty convenient and a good alternative for train, car or bicycle.
Gamla Stan is the historical old town of Stockhom that dates back to the early 13th century. There, you can find the huge Royal Palace that was build in the 18th century, Stockholms Cathedral St. Nikolai Church and many things more. The place was very clean and architectual appealing. I would recommend walking through, later in the day. You will avoid a bulk of tourists and can enjoy the sunset (what I mentioned ealrier before) with a hot cup of chocolate in one of many delicious restaurants.
The child in me!👶🏾
We spend half a day in the cities amusement park Gröna Lund. It offered plenty of rides and good food for young and old.
We bought the biggest spun sugar ever🙊 and the people there were very nice and helpful.
I would recommend to avoid going there on the weekend, because it will be very crowded. We went during the week and it was okay.
Altogether a fun day!
