Sweden – 4 Days in Stockholm

Dan & I went to Stockholm over bank holiday weekend.

All the rumours are true – it’s a beautiful city with great architecture, good food and is so clean and quiet in comparison to London and Paris.

While I resisted the urge to splurge in cool skandi shops, we did get plenty of culture and enjoyed all the main sites that the city has to offer.

Areas we loved:
- Sodermalm – the South island with all the kooky boutiques and great cafes
- Djurgarden – the island which is essentially a forest, in the middle of town. Skansen the open air museum here was fun and pretty amazing.

In the above I’m wearing a T-shirt from ASOS, Skirt from Toast & Birkenstocks. My bag is Philip Lim.


This is Skansen – it’s an open air museum and they transported loads of old buildings from all around Sweden to an area in the middle of Stockholm. Plus there’s a zoo.

Other things we enjoyed:
- Vasa Museum – This is the ship that sunk in Stockholm harbour about 30 minutes after it set sail (because the King at the time sounds like a pompous idiot!)
- Wandering around with our walking guide tourbook

Stockholm Path

Gamala Stan – the old bit of town. Very touristy, but retains some of it’s ye olde charm.

Stockholm Food

We ate at some great restaurants. Flippin’ Burgers was a highlight, as was this dish above from a 5 course tasting menu of foods from Sweden.

Stockholm Boat

Oh yes, and we did the obligatory boat tour.
