Shut up and taste a Kanelbulle
Tips for an unforgettable holiday
1. A picnic in Djurgården
When my friends and I went there the sun was shining in the sky so it was such a hot day, which was perfect to have a walk along the pathways of the park. The best thing to do here is absolutely a picnic, so remember to buy some food on your way to the park. The only thing you mustn’t buy yet are the kanelbullar (typical Swedish delight with cinnamon) because you’re gonna taste the best one right in the park. There’s an area in particular called Rosendalsvägen where most people have a picnic or just seat in the greenhouse to taste the best kanelbulle bought in the little stand in front of it.
Imagine the most beautiful place you’ve always dreamt, paint it pink, multiply it by infinity and add a little more perfection: now you have Greta’s. This is honestly the best cafe where to have a girl chat and taste a vanilla macaroon reading a Vogue. In fact (I’m not kidding) there’s a fashion photo book on basically every corner of the main table of the place. Basically a dream.
3. Hard Rock Cafe
I know, I know, this is not one of those places which you can call “original” but trust me, it is really worth a visit. I didn’t know the Had Rock Cafe in Stockholm was so big. I went to several ones in the past all over the world but I have to say I didn’t expect that in such a not-so-big city there was a quite big one. It is perfect as last stop of a whole day spent walking nonstop.
4. Take photos at the public library
I’ve discovered this amazing place totally by chance, while I was exploring this part of the city. The public library of Stockholm is really close to the Hard Rock Cafe, so as you might understand I’ve come across it the same time of the library. The building is a huge cylinder, a kind of circular enormous room whose walls are full of books of every language and topic you can imagine. The best fact about it is that the outside of the library is really basic, while once you walk in there you are amazed.
5. Gröna Lund
This is probably the funnest thing to do in Stockholm and also the perfect one to do with friends. I think I’ve never had so much fun. The Gröna Lund is a funfair, full of roller coasters and other attractions which makes your day better. It’s not so big because is basically in the city centre but if you want to have a great time and spend a fun day with your friends, this is the right place. By the way I have to add that the Gröna Lund is also so photogenic (when you are there you feel like in a film) and if you love to take photos go there, you won’t regret.
