Stockholm photo diary

Another one of the fashion capitals ticked off my list. Stockholm encompasses all things cool, the people have razor cut cheekbones and blue eyes, dress impeccably, the whole city basically seems to have their shit together. There is an abundance of green space alongside independent shops and restaurants making the city feel rather un city like, the air is clean and streets calm. 
 The city is a made up of little islands, an archipelago that means you are never too far away from water. This automatically leads to a shift in neighborhoods as you wander across bridges, Gamla Stan is half tourist trap half historic gem, Sodermalm is the Brookyln/Shoreditch equivalent I suppose, minus the gentrification, Ostermalm is more affluent, and just opposite beyond the water is Djurgården, a massive green space.
I stayed in an Airbnb which was beautiful and also in the heart of Sofo in Sodermalm (and you know I’m on that swedish chocolate soon as I land!!)

Some of my personal recommendations and highlights include:

TO EAT
Urban Deli, delicious deli/restaurant, good for people watching in the sun
Nytorget 6, bad service but decadent food and gorgeous interior
Fabrique, marble tables and cinnamon buns, ultimate combo (they actually have one in London which was featured in this Stylist article)

TO DO
Skansen, a giant open-air museum showing over 150 traditional Swedish dwellings throughout the ages, with people dressed in traditional clothing and Scandinavian animals (elk, reindeer, wolves, bears etc) roaming, it’s actually really cool even if it sounds ridiculous.

Moderna Museet, modern art museum with a great collection. There was actually a burglary here in 1993 where £40m worth of Picasso and Braques was stolen using a method they saw in a French film. COOL!

Has anyone else been? would love to see your posts.
