Destinations in Stockholm
I, therefore, make a note of places that she visited. And, I intend to visit all of places on my note some time before I leave for my homeland. Here are names of those places:-
Millesgården, a wonderful sculpture park on Lidingö. It was once a residence of Carl Milles, one of Sweden’s greatest sculptors, and besides the beautiful garden filled with Milles’ works, it also features a museum, an art gallery, and a cafe bistro.
Stadshuset (the City Hall), with its majestic tower adorned with three gold crowns, is situated on the banks of Lake Mälaren. Don’t miss the celebrated Golden Hall, and the Blue Hall where the Nobel banquet takes place. (I’m looking forward to visiting it on October 3, 2006, for a reception held by the City of Stockholm and the Stockholm County Council.)
Norr Mälarstrand (a street)
Söder Mälarstrand (a street)
Djurgården (by taking the furry)
Skansen, located on the island of Djurgården
Vasamuseet, home of the world-famous royal warship Vasa, located on the island of Djurgården
Walking under Stockholm’s bridges
Kungliga slottet (The Royal Palace), its museum, and gift shop. The Changing of the Guards is a particular favorite among visitors and residents alike.
Tomtar och Troll (on Österlånggatan in Gamla Stan)
Nobelmuseet (treat yourself to some Nobel ice cream at Kafe Satir)
Gondolen (find a chance to dine here, and experience its supurb cuisine and fantastic view of Stockholm)
(I haven’t known where they are located or how to reach them, nevertheless, I know what I’m looking for.)
