February and March are usually pretty intense when it comes to travelling (Vienna, Bratislava and Lisbon). Today, we’re adding Sweden.
Ha Sweden. Design, IKEA, &otherstories and meatballs. We took advantage of a long weekend to bring our parkas to discover the capital city of the “country where the most beautiful people are” (source: myself)
What to do, what to see?
Our favorite: Fotografiska.
Fotografiska is Stockholm’s photography museum, next to the river. Hosting several temporary exhibitions, the museum is shining a light on both known artists with dedicated retrospectives, and on those who would deserve to be recognized more.
In the museum, no massive design elements or scenography, what matters here are the pictures. Allow some time to wander in the great museum’s shop, which sells past exhibits’ posters.
Careful, Fotografiska doesn’t take cash.
Eat & drink
Meatballs – For the People: A restaurant focused on our favorite thing: meatballs! The menu isn’t big and only cares about this Swedish delight. (Try the meatballs with goat cheese!)
Omnipollos Hatt: On a tiny street, a tiny bar, with tiny beers (no pints). Cool selection and bonus point: they have a pizza oven!
Akkurat: A pub with a wide beer menu. IPA, lager, pale ale, pick one and you won’t be disappointed.
K25: A good amount of food-trucks in the city center. Burgers, Thai, falafels once again, just close your eyes and pick one. You get to eat sitting on stairs, perfect for people watching.
Café Pascal: A great avocado toast for a coffee shop a little outside the city but right next to the ACNE discount shop.
Kaferang: Between Soderman and Folkungagatan (SOFO, if you want to be hip), a brunch place where you need to order straight from the counter. Right accross the very popular Urban Deli.
The patriotic Kanken shop.
