5 (surprising) hotspots in Stockholm, Sweden

on

Before we boarded the Serenade of the Seas for weeklong cruise to Helsinki in Finland, Saint Petersburg in Russia, Tallinn in Estonia and Riga in Latvia; Steve and I spent a day and a half in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. Where did we go?

1: H&M at Hangatan

We were barely ‘ten minutes’ in Stockholm and I was attracted to an H&M. According to the Insight Guide, H&M at Hamngatan 22 is the one where new products are launched. I don’t know if that’s true. But I bought a suit there which was on sale. 45 euros for a pink suit! Perfect for pink occasions.

Sorry not sorry.

2: ABBA The Museum

Does this one needs an introduction? No, because we a blogpost about ABBA The Museum. Just go.

3: Skansen

Skansen (“Skonse“) is an open-air museum on the island of Djurgården opened in 1891. It’s Sweden a nutshell, it’s fun, it’s quaint, it’s historical.

4: Restaurang Prinsen

From the three traditional Swedish restaurants we tried, Restaurang Prinsen at Mäster Samuelsgatan 4 was the nicest with the nicest food. We had fish. Whe had the world famous köttbullar (“shutbullar“) at Kvarnen on Tjärhovsgatan 4 and at Fem Små Hus on Nygränd 10. We preferred the meatballs at Fem Små Hus.

5: TAK

Restaurant and rooftop bar TAK on Brunkebergstorg 2-4 is quite impressive. It’s like a beach lounge / bar on a roof. Pretty view, hip design. Unfortunately  you have to cope with the m’as-tu vu (have you seen me) attitude. Still, have a drink or two there.
