Nacho had some meetings so I decided to take a tour around this new island!. First thing I did was to enjoy the views from Mosebacke terrace. At the time I got there it was still closed, so I just took some photos and headed west towards Katarina Kyrka. It is church built in seventeen hundreds but it is not that impressive. I continued walking to the west until I reached Fjällgatan, which it is said one of the nicest streets there.
Once I was done with Fjällgatan I followed Renstirnas Gata towards SoFo, one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in Stockholm! There I went in a nice cafeteria which based all its decoration in the movie industry. I took some photos, so you can see them in the blog too. I walked all around this neighbourhood and on the way I found tons of stores, cafeterias and restaurants. Actually, I was surprised to see so many people when I got to Götgatan Street. Woaow, I guess all locals were there! ☺ there were a couple of squares full of people having lunch or a nice ice cream.
My legs hurt but now I know why. From Djurgärden I walked through Gamla Stan and headed to the City Hall, where they celebrate the Nobel prizes. From there I went walking towards Ostermalm until I came across a very amusing street, its name was Drottningg. There I found tons of souvenirs stores and many other brands. I guess that it must be one of the most important shopping areas. Then, from here I went to Humle �"Garden. I was amazed by the number of students lying down on the grass. It is next to the National Library. I guess that Ostermalm is the rich side of the city, as I came across many expensive stores and restaurants. Houses looked very nice too.
By the way, during both days the city is been hosting day parties all around.
Next stop was Djurgärden again, as I wanted to visit Skansen Park! And I did everthing walking! I just followed Djurgärdswägen street all the way until it ends. On the way you find restaurants which are quite cosy and I even came across a small market. On the way back I bought a ticket for Skansen Park. I had been hearing a lot about it, so I decided to go in and see what was in there.
I was extremely tired, so I went to a nice park located next to Vasamuseet, took my shoes off, and had a nice nap on the grass! ☺ Actually some loud music woke me up as there was a concert about to start! Woaw, this is the non-stopping city! I wonder what all these guys do when the winter comes…. I had dinner at Strandbryggan again! I loooooove that place!... ☹ the trip is reaching its end… as once I finished dinner, I went to the T- Centralen to get my luggage and took the Arlanda Express to the hotel… I am definitely coming back! So far, it is the best European city I have been to.
