Djurgården, Vasa Museum, Skansa, Nordiksa Museum. We needed to take bus 69 from Sergels torg to Vasa Museum but we lost our way at City center (it’s really confusing for new visitors). After asking around we reached Nybroplan and took tram number 7 towards Waldemarsudde. The tram ride was an experience in itself. Once we reached Vasa museum stoppage we found the surrounding area of Djurgården was quite picturesque. Vasa museum according to their website is “the only preserved seventeenth-century ship in the world, and a unique art treasure. More than 95 percent of the ship is original, and it is decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures.” The ship looked amazing with its masts, high decks, sculptures etc. and for a moment it felt that Captain Jack Sparrow will holler from the upper deck. Also, the technology with which the ship was salvaged is too overwhelming.
Gamla Stan or Old Town dates back to 13th Century where most of the buildings we see today are 300 - 400 years old. Yes, that's right. They are 300-400 years old and still used by Swedish people as there very home. Visually they are beautiful colorful buildings which represents the ancient Scandinavian architecture. The Royal Palace of Sweden also consists a part of Gamla Stan, which I would cover separately as it deserves a substantial no of photographs and descriptions. Not to be missed in Gamla Stan is Stortorget. Its a Square which was used to massacre Swedish Nobel People by Danish King in 16th Century. In present day, we have Alfred Nobel Museum located in the same place. I thought of having a quick coffee in that cozy cafe inside the Museum but ended up spending two hours in it looking around and reading about different Nobel laureates. Was very fortunate to be able to see the Original Will of Alfred Nobel written by himself, as it was the last day of keeping it for display. I also visited St Geogre Church and The German Church. Unfortunately couldn't go inside the German Church, because of an ongoing mass. St George Church is right next to the Royal Palace. After a memorable walk through the Gamla Stan, my stomach started growling and asking for a much needed meal. I had heard about an Indian restaurant in Gamla Stan but couldn't really find it through out my walk but then finally here I was. Just few step ahead of German Church, we have Hurry Curry, the ultimate Indian Restaurant. Although being from a Non-Vegetarian family, I am kind of preferably vegetarian. So, obviously it was a heaven for me. Also I would like to mention over here, that there are a lot of amazing restaurant options specially for non-veggies on the lane which joins Stortorget and The German Church. That was just a glimpse of my Gamla Stan walk. Please check out some pictures too which relates to my write up. Much more to come. Thanks for your time. Amulya
Acne Studios is a Stockholm based fashion house founded by Creative director Johnny Johansson. Johansson’s interest in photography, art, architecture and contemporary culture lead to turning Acne Studio into a highly respected creator of pret fashion, magazines, furniture, books and exhibitions. At the Acne Archive (yes, a fashion store called Archive, already sounds super cool), expect all prices to be slashed by at least 50 per cent, with many going as low as 80 per cent off . Since the brand is based in Stockholm, there are lots of one-of-a-kind pieces like runway samples in colourways that were never put in production. acnestudios.com
