We only had 5 hours in Sweden’s capital. It was August 3, 2013 (haha ohmy how late these posts are) and it was easily one of THE nicest days we were able to enjoy, weather-wise. Essentially, we only had time to:
- Take our necessary ho/ho tour (on a hop-on/hop-off bus)
- Walk around town
- Browse the Nobel museum
- Eat Swedish meatballs
However, there were so many things that we didn’t get to do in that teeny amount of time, like:
- Visit the ABBA museum
- Check out the famous metro station art
- Go to the giant flagship IKEA at the border of the city
But enough about what we missed out on. I still had a really good time during my 5 short hours in Stockholm!
One of the reasons I was supremely sad at how short our stay was in Stockholm was the fact that the weather was absolutely perfect. It may have been the most perfect day of the entire trip, even.
We spent most of our time on the ho/ho bus, learning about Stockholm and taking in the sights, because our time was so limited. (Fun fact: Yo, Stockholm is a very wealthy city. There are some residents who pay 51% income tax. Officially, more of their income goes to the state than into their own pockets. And they still live like ballers.)
Oh man, Stockholm was a beautiful city, it truly was. But let’s not forget those highlights! Like Swedish non-IKEA meatballs:
I also got to visit the Nobel museum!
We weren’t able to stay long enough for a guided tour, but you know, all in all, I had a nice time in Stockholm. It was a beautiful city that I cannot afford, but I’d love to spend a little longer there next time. (And see the ABBA museum!)
