11 thoughts on “Stockholm: Summer Days in Swedish Capital”

  1. Stockholm has always been one of those cities that are among the most livable in the world, the very quality that really makes me want to see and experience it myself. And the fact that the Swedish capital is in fact spread out across several islands only makes it even more interesting.

    1. If you like Stockholm, I suggest watching Kiki’s Delivery Service (Studio Ghibli)? It is said that the author drew his inspiration from Stockholm and a village called Visby. A ligh-hearted movie. Suitable for lockdown 🙂

      1. I know…this summer has been a bit too much for the Swedish temperament…but much better than 2018, which nearly killed me.

  2. This brought back some wonderful memories of my two visits to Stockholm. Gamla Stan, a canal cruise, and 3.5 hours in the extraordinary Vasa Museum are all standouts.

    1. I didn’t have the chance to go inside the Vasa Museum 🙁 Was silly enough to go there without booking the ticket in advance. A reason to go back!

  3. I’ve always wondered what Stockholm was like, and have heard its summers are quite mild. Good to hear you got out and about amidst the storms. Gamla Stan really does have quite a bit of historical charm. Stockholm City Hall looks incredible grand with elements of European architecture and Royal Game Park looks like a great place for some quiet time. Lovely to hear Stockholm is accessible by foot or public transport over fourteen islands – and if you plan your trip well, you can visit quiet a few places in a day. Hope you are doing well, Len 🙂

    1. Exactly, if you plan well, you can visit many sites in just one day. I wish I could spend more time at Djurgården. It was so pleasant. And I have to re-visit the Vasa. Was silly enough to go there without advance booking 😛

      Except for being locked at home, I am doing fine here. Trying to write something by using the old photos. I have like 40 drafts. The ideas are there, but my brain is often on strike 🙂
