Ten Things That I Want to Do In Stockholm, Sweden
“Don’t you worry about me. I’ll always come out on top.”Astrid Lundgren, Pippi Longstocking
Visit Fotografishka. Situated in an old red brick on the waterfront that once belonged to the customs department is Fotografiska. It’s a big photography gallery that delves into the history of the art form, with wall upon wall of stunning images (not unlike my new living space).
Eat Swedish meatballs with mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam because Pippi Longstocking and her friends ate them.
Walk around Gamla Stan – Stockholm’s Old Town. Cobblestone streets, winding alleyways and colorful, classic architecture abound creating a medieval atmosphere.
Go to the Nobel Museum which houses exhibits about the Nobel Prize and its laureates.
On Saturdays and Sundays, Hornstull Marknad is the ultimate hipster flea market. It also attracts the best food trucks.
On the island of Skeppsholmen at the Baltic Sea entrance to the city is Stockholm’s Museum Of Modern And Contemporary Art.
I might have to go to Junibacken. Based on the stories of children’s author Astrid Lindgren, it is a theme park aimed at young readers. Pippi Longstocking was one of my favorite books. I have to see the Villa Villekula.
I’m not sure about the Abba Museum. They are a cultural phenomenon. It’s a must visit for fans and dancing queens but sounds like it could be a fun thing to do for anyone.
Stockholm is a city that lies on the water and has lots of islands. One of the best ways to explore the city (and see it from a totally different perspective) is via a canal boat tour, taking you around the main sights in the city.
