Stockholm Travel Diary – Part II
The third day we walked from Norrmalm to Riddarholmen to Södermalm to discover new parts of the city. Unfortunately it was raining almost all day, so I was not able to make many photos. In Södermalm we went to the best vintage store I’ve every been: Judits. We all bought a handbag, mine was vintage Dior, but the pattern reminds me of the current Gucci bags. I also found a Diesel bomberjack and a Samsoe & Samsoe sweather. We walked around with an umbrella and even during the rain Stockholm is beautiful.
Jårnpojke (Iron Boy) is the smallest monument in town, he is just 15cm tall. Every once in a while he gets a new scarf or jacket, how cute!
During our final day we went to my favorite museum: ABBA Museum! After a good 40 minute walk in Östermalm and Kungliga Djurgården we a arrived and we really liked how they furnished the museum. It was interactive and I can recommend to buy the audio guide. For the Dutchies, you will hear the voice of Kees Tol :) The audio guide makes it a nice experience! After a coffee and of course a cinnamon bun we went outside and noticed there was a tiny bit of snow falling down. We really wanted to discover Kungliga Djurgården more but it was so cold because it’s located close to the water. We decided to walk back to our neighborhood in Norrmalm to visit some shops.
Östermalm & Kungliga Djurgården
We arrived two days after the terrorist attack in Stockholm. It was very impressive to see the streets covered with flowers. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all of the families and loved ones of those who have been a part of this terrible tragedy.
Besides the horrible terrorist attack that happend right before our arrival in front of our hotel, we had a great time with the three of us in the cold streets of Stockholm! It’s a beautiful city and I would love to go back one time during summer. I can absolutely recommend Stockholm for a city trip!
