I flew to Stockholm to see what mid-Summer night would be in the Swedish capital. The city was really beautiful, but surprisingly empty. I quickly found out that most locals leave town for the weekend of mid-Summer Night. This did not stop me from having fun and making some new friends in this new city. As soon as I arrived, I noticed that the temperature has dropped. Honestly it did not feel like mid-Summer at all. It felt more like November. I dressed up warmly and went to discover the city. The city was really beautiful. I headed straight to the historical neighborhood. weekend Stockholm
Walked by the Royal Palace of Stockholm. It is the largest presidential palace in the World.
It reminded me of the night I met the Swedish King at Prince Albert’s wedding in Monaco. He was nice and friendly. We had a good chat about the charity work he was involved in. He also complemented my dress, which I was very flattered by.
I continued my journey down to City Hall, where they hand out the annual Nobel Prize.
I walked by the Opera and other prestigious old buildings. The city was beautiful with lots of elegantly decorated buildings. The city is a connection of small islands and everything is surrounded by water. Many people live on boats on the water. The city reminded me of Switzerland a bit. The architecture and the athmosphere of the city was similar to Zurich.
I spent the next day sitting around cafes trying out all the colourful Swedish sweets.
Stockholm has some really interesting coffee shops, with really great food. I especially liked Gildas Rum. It served very delicious brunch and a good selection of colorful salads. I visited one of the most interesting museums I have seen, the Fotografiska Museum. The collection was really beautiful. I had such a pleasant time in Stockholm that I am sure to return to this beautiful city very soon. It is an amazing city to relax and recharge after the hussle and bussle of London.
