Stockholm was for years a true love of mine. After this trip in 2016 I created an integral bond with this city that changed me to the core. No words or photos are enough to describe what my hungry eye saw during my stay there, but this tiny sum up will give you an idea of how things were back then in my life.
1.Breakfast at Pom & Flora:
Placed in the beautiful Södermalm area, this small place was the ideal kickoff for our day and an inspiring breakfast paradise. The walk here from our hotel was always a refreshing uphil that built our appetite!
The menu is full of interesting choices. There is a wide range of pastries cereals, creative combinations and interesting flavours. We went for the avocado on rye bread and the acai smoothie bowl with chia pudding and banana. During the weekends the place is packed, so wake up early!
The Stockholm subway system is said to be the world’s longest art exhibit, 110 kilometers long.Traveling by subway is like traveling through an exciting story that extends from the artistic pioneers of the 1950s to the art experiments of today. The the T-Centralen, Kungsträdgården, Solna Centrum were some of my favourites train stations.
2. Exhibitions at Moderna Museet:
“Yayoi Kusama – In Infinity is the first major retrospective presentation of Kusama’s oeuvre in Scandinavia, spanning her entire artistic career from the early 1950s until today. The exhibition features a rich selection of paintings, drawings and sculptures, including spatial installations and performance-related material, paying particular attention to works from the late 1980s, after Kusama’s return to Japan. It is also the first comprehensive exhibition featuring Kusama’s interest in fashion and design. On view are works never shown previously, as well as a series of paintings made especially for Yayoi Kusama – In Infinity.”
Moderna Museet: Exercisplan 4, 111 49 Stockholm, Sweden, tel: +46 8 5202 3500
3. Coffee and shopping at Snickarbacken 7:
“In the heart of Stockholm, in a building from the late 1800’s that used to be stables, Snickarbacken 7 is a café, exhibition space and a concept store all in one. The store offers a careful and personal selection of homeware, jewelry, stationery, coffee supplies and more. The café is integrated with the exhibition space and serves both breakfast and lunch.”
This place is a true hidden gem! Quiet and atmospheric soon became on of my favourite spots in Stockholm. People come here with their books and laptops, the coffee is great and the Fika is a must!
