    A unique café

    Mathias in front of the caf��

    On the northern side of Skeppsholmen island, overlooking Djurgården with the Vasa museum, Gröna Lund amusement park and Skansen across the water we stumbled upon a most peculiar small café. It consists of the small yellow building in the picture and is open "wednesday to sunday when sunny". The beverages and cookies and buns are all home made and the porcelain you drink from looks like something you would find at your grand-ma somewhere in Sweden in the 1970's.

    We sat down about 1 meter from the water for a rest and it was really nice. I warmly recommend this place for a cup of coffee if you're around!

    Karlson's roof house

    Wandering at the Stockholm streets just look around attentively and you will for sure find out the places where the heros of your childhood live :)
    Isn't it the roof house of Karlson (from Astrid Lindgren story)? ;-)

    The shore path of Skeppsholmen offers several vantage points from which to gain an apprieciation of Stockholm's situation: there are excellent views of Södermalm to the south and of Gamla Stan to the west.

    Skeppsholmen - the Royal Academy of Fine Arts

    cool school

    This handsome structure was an 18th century naval barracks. Now it has been "recycled" at the "Kungliga Konsth?gskolan" - the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. It truly gleams in the winter sun. The students here are fortunate in being able to take advantage of the nearby Moderna Museet - Museum of Modern Art - which however was closed for mold when I visited the city in 2003.
