Postcards from Stockholm
Back in July I went for a weekend to Stockhom, the main reason was to see Calvin Harris, (who was brilliant by the way) and I already posted about it. The Saturday was spent wondering around the old part of Stockholm called Gamla Stan, which is a beautiful part of the city to explore.
Here you can see Stockholm Cathedral, the Royal Palace, lots of museums, Ridderholmen Church and lots of other grand buildings. It is one of the best preserved medieval city centres in Europe, it has the oldest square in Stockholm called Stortorget.
We wondered around most the streets looking at the shops, which of course has lots of lovely design shops. It took us ages to decide on a restaurant and when we did, we both had a delicious salad, then we decided to head back to the hostel. Our feet were killing us, but we still took a long journey back walking via the sea. We stopped off at the town hall, I think where we saw lots of weddings going on, they certainly had perfect weather and views.
The following day we only had the morning to explore so we stayed again by the sea and walked further out. It seemed like most Swedes were out and about doing sport and sunbathing, we sat for a while watching some people kayaking, it was certainly quite popular that Sunday.
Then it was back to the hostel to grab our stuff and head to the airport, and another great weekend was finished.
