  • Gamla Stan (The Old Town)

    Stockholm Favorites

    The old town "Gamla Stan" is the oldest part of Stockholm dating back approximately 750 years. This part of the town is dominated by narrow cobbled streets and many churches like the 13th century St. Nicolas Church (Storkyrkan), the German Church (Tyska kyrkan) and the Finnish Church (Finska kyrka). In the north eastern corner of the old town the...

  • Södermalm

    Stockholm Favorites

    Again, perhaps because me and my father were both born here and his father and grandfather lived and worked here too, but Söder is my favourite part of town. Something to do with the hills too I suppose, with all the great views of Stockholm. That and the remaining old houses which are either stone apartment houses in yellow, or little wooden...

  • Services and Information

    Stockholm Favorites

    Food is expensive in Stockholm - a main course seems to cost around 180 SEK onwards but a cheap lunch is one of the many types of hot dogs you can buy about a tenth of the price. The corner shop Pressbyrån which seems to be everywhere all seem to sell hot dogs with a choice of types. I recommend the cheese one (ost). Absolutely delicious. If you...

  • History

    Stockholm Favorites

    If you ever take the subway and get off at the Rådhuset station, you will see some "boxes" sticking out of the walls (see my picture). These boxes, as I learnt, are a representation of an old volume measurement unit called parm. A parm unit was used to measure hay and would be the equivalent of 3 3/4 ells in length by 4 3/4 ells in width on each...

  • Stadshuset (City Hall)

    Stockholm Favorites

    Visit the city hall. Here you can take the tour and see, amongst other, the hall where the Nobel prize banquet is held. When visiting, do not forget to take the lift to the top of the tower. From up there you have a magnificent view of Gamla Stan.

  • Skansen

    Stockholm Favorites

    While having an outdoor lunch at one of the picnic areas at Skansen we made a new friend.

Its not often you see red squirrels here in the UK anymore so its nice to see they are still around in...

  • Skärgården (Stockholm Archipelago)

    Stockholm Favorites

    If you only have a day in Stockholm, take the open-top bus tour to see the highlights of the city. You'll be impressed with how many parks and how much water there is every where!

    Just go walk around the city and you will see the most beautiful buildings, particularly the churches. I am told that the national government pays for the upkeep or restorations of the buildings. Engelbrekts Kyrkan is just one example.

    This is the main library. It was designed by the well reputated architect Gunnar Asplund in 1928. Around the big central cylindric hall there are four long book rooms. All together forms a cubic block. The building has a sharp geometrical form. The style is funcionalistic, at that time a radical french new classisism, they say. The entry from...
