Beautiful Stockholm

Kastellet is a small naval fort located on the top of the hill on the small island of Kastellholmen just outside of the old Stockholm city center. The Swedish flag, flying above the citadel, signifies whether or not the country is at peace. When it’s up (like in the pictures below) all is well in Sweden. The practice dates back to 1667, when the citadel was first built.

Nybroviken is a small bay in the central Stockholm which connects to the south with the bay Ladugardslandsviken.

Fika is a concept, a state of mind, and important part of Swedish culture. Many Swedes consider that it’s important to make time for fika everyday which means making time for friends and colleagues to share a cup of coffee or tea and a little something to it. There is a great variety of beautiful and cozy cafes in Stockholm where you can enjoy fika time.

Riddarholmen is a small island in central Stockholm, which forms part of Gamla Stan and houses a number of private palaces dating back to the 17th century.

Founded in 1891, Skansen is the world’s first open-air museum which offers an amazing look into historical Swedish life.

Seglora Church is a wooden church dating back to the early 18th century. The town quarter shows urban life in Sweden during the 18th and 19th century.
