My last pizza I bought from this place.
Hello. I'm visiting Eskilstuna for a few days. Is there any internet cafe, possibly near to the train station?
Re: Internet Cafe
I quickly googled it for you and there is one called Gameheaven (gameheaven.nu) at Smedjegatan 41 (this is about 5 minutes from the station). Alternatively it would be possible to go to the library where there are drop-in computers where you have 15 minutes of free internet time. I am not sure how this works if you are not from Sweden, but you can ask at the information desk.
Travel Tips for Eskilstuna
Parken Zoo in Eskilstuna.
Well, in Eskilstuna we have a zoo with many exclusive animals for example the white tiger. There are many more things to do at the zoo, and a place where children like to go. Some times during the summer there are concerts with famous Swedish and foreign artists. You also have a smaller tivoli here and when it is too hot, you go to parkenbadet and swim in the big swimming pool. When I was young and we went here and drank during the summer nights. I also went here during the day time to to watch the animals and swim in Parkenbadet.
Walk in Stadsparken close to the river....
It is very beautiful along the river of Eskilstuna, also called in Swedish Eskilstunaån. Here you can feed the ducks in the river during the winter. Walk around and sit down and read your newspaper. bring a blanket and have a picnic with your girl friend/boy friend or all your friends. You can just bring a book and sit here and read. I like when it is so quiet along the riverand watch the ducks and just relax.
Five figures with Saint Eskil
These five figures are originally from the medieval church altar. Looking from left to right you can see a Saint Dominic, Saint Birgitta, Saint Eskil (holding the three stones, as a symbol as he was stoned to death), an unknown female saint and on the right a holy king, either Saint Olov or Saint Erik. The sculptures are from around 1475.
Mälarsjukhuset (the hospital)
Here is not a place where you will go if you have vacation. Here att he hospital you have all chances to get the help you need. They also sell medicin here (Apoteket see more under my Sweden page). At the hospital there is a café, restaurant, hair dresser and a smaller service shop. Phone nr is 016 - 10 30 00.
