Indian groceries in Linköping

by atungekar

Hey there!
I have just moved with my family (wife and 9month old son) from Mumbai and we will be living in Linköping for around 2 years. Could anyone please let me know if there are any Indian groceries stores available in Linköping? Their contact details (phone no. and address) will be really helpful.

Thank you.

Regards.../Anzaaf

Hello!

Unfortunately I have no knowledge about Linköping what so ever, but I checked it up on the internet and came up with this.

Apparently they have a big food hall selling "everything from everywhere" (according to themselves) so I guess it could be with to investigate further.
The place is called "Matkällaren"
Address and contact number:
Torggatan 6
Linköping
Telefon: 013-100 130
E-post: info@matkallaren.se

The other place I found is an Indian restaurant, and they ought to know all there is about finding Indian groceries. The restaurant is called "Yogi"
Address and contact number:
Platensgatan 5
582 20 Linköping
Telefon: 013-10 09 60

Don't know if this helps or not, but maybe it is a start (until someone with real knowledge about Linköping postas a reply). :-)

Travel Tips for Linköping

Svenska!

by Marpessa

When I travel abroad and go to a foreign country that doesn't speak English as a first language I usually try to learn some words to help me get by (although since I am staying here so long I have just started language classes). So I'll list some Swedish words here that might help. Don't worry if you can't remember them, just remember the first one, as almost everyone in Linköping speaks some English (most that I have met so far speak it quite fluently).

Do you speak English?: Talar du engelska?
Hej: hello
My name is...: Jag heter...
Yes/No: Ja/Nej
Please/Thank you: Tack (pronounced like 'Tuhk')
How are you?: Hur är det?
Good thanks, and you?: Bra tack, och du?
Entrance/Exit: Ingång/Utgång
Skål!: Cheers!

I don't understand: Jag förstår inte (förstår = furr-stoar)

For further words or help with Swedish, there is a link below to a good online Swedish-English/English-Swedish dictionary.

Bjärka-Säby

by Sjalen

There is nothing special here apart from Bjärka-Säby mansion. Just some houses scattered around a commuter railway station. I just happen to find the countryside here soooo lovely. Just catch the train, hop off and walk around the juniper and oak hills around the mansion...I could live here.

Linköping Castle and Diocese Museum

by Sjalen

Linköping Castle has today been turned into a museum showing the history of the city which is quite dramatic. The castle itself is not one of those romantic ones but is still a lot older than it seems. In fact, it is the oldest non ecclesiastic building in Sweden! Its oldest parts are from the 12th century and from late 13th century onwards, this was the bishops' residence in what was then the second most important diocese in Sweden. During this time, the city of Linköping got the Folkunga family's lion as its coat of arms since the bishop Bengt Birgersson's father was none less than the Folkunga ancestor Birger Jarl - founder of Stockholm. You can still see the lion in city symbols - not least its ice hockey team.

The mansion was extended throughout the centuries and became a renaissance castle during the 16th century thanks to king Johan III and duke Karl and if you have been to Nyköping which was one of Karl's favourite cities, you will see similarities in castle architecture even if a lot is lost to us there. It is thought that the famous Linköping Blood bath executions (see my intro) took place here and not in one of the city's squares as thought earlier. At least the noble men were imprisoned here before their executions. After these dramatic events, the castle fell into a bit of disrepair but since 1785, it has been used as residence to the County chief of Östergötland where Linköping is the capital. In 2000, the museum was opened in the northern wing.

The museum shows the castle and cathedral history and how the city grew thanks to these. You get to see parts of the castle such as the turret where there is an exhibition on a dramatic meeting between Bishop Brask and king Gustav Vasa debating the reformation. Then there is the treasury with exhibits from the rich history of the cathedral. Finally, you can look at the permanent exhibition which includes stories of the foreign stonemasons who came here to build the cathedral and how this was done. The medieval atmosphere is also kept by a couple of mummified black rats...Apart from this there are temporary exhibitions on different times in the history of the castle such as the royal tours through Östergötland and various handicraft. I have not yet been here since time only allowed the more child friendly museums this time and I know I would have wanted to stay and read so much more but I would definately recommend it for the history buff.

Stora Torget (Grand Square)

by Diana75

If you expect to see a huge impressive square in the center of the city, it is not the case in Linkoping.

Stora Torget (Grand Square) is just a normal square surrounded by relatively low buildings, some of them part of international hotel chains.

In 1960 the area around Stora Torget (Grand Square) was reorganized and many old houses have been dismantled and some of them moved to Gamla Linkoping outside the central part of the town.
