Friday, the day after I arrived, Ingela (my host dad’s girlfriend) and I had some free time before I had to go to language camp. Ingela lived in England for 5 years for college so she has been on an iconic double-decker tour bus before, but not in Stockholm. Since it was my first time in Stockholm we decided that the Hop On, Hop Off bus tour would be a great idea!
We were a little early for the bus so first we took a look around the Royal Library.
After killing some time there the bus came. We decided to sit on top of the bus because the weather was very nice and I, of course, had to take pictures. The bus had an audio guide to listen to, which was another reason we decided to do it.
I don’t know exactly what the names of all the buildings are, some I just took because I thought the architecture was amazing!
The Royal Palace
Beautiful Old Town Stockholm
Stadsmuseum where you can find the history of Stockholm
A Stockholm city street in the area of Södermalm, where the working class and hipsters live, or so I was told.
Gröna Lund, the amusement park
The Nordic Museum
A city street near Old Town Stockholm
The bus tour was actually very fun and educational. They talked a lot about the history of not only Stockholm but Sweden as a whole country. The tour also covered a majority of Stockholm, so it was a good over view of the city.
I think this was the best introductory into both Sweden and Stockholm. I already know where I want to visit if I get the chance to go back to Stockholm.
The next post will be about another introductory thing, my language camp!
Se dig snart! Hej då!
