I hope you are all enjoying the weekend so far 🙂 We certainly had a beautiful day yesterday, but the weather today can’t seem to make up its mind!
With spring really starting to hit Stockholm, we can see that everyone wants to be outside.
On Friday after classes, we decided to go on an impromptu picnic on at Kungsträdgården. It was so busy since everyone in the city had the same idea. We found some steps to sit on in the sun and enjoyed some mjukglass (Soft serve ice cream).
It can be a little misleading from the map, but this park isn’t really a “green space” but an open park like environment with restaurants and patios surrounding it! It was really quite pretty, since the Cherry Blossoms are just beginning to bloom along the paths. I would recommend visiting this spring to enjoy the colours!
It was a nice treat to sit outside and we soaked up the sun before heading for some dinner at Vigårda. This is a great place to come with friends since the prices are reasonable and it is super central!
We sat outside on the terrace as long as we could, but it was a little crisp after the sun went down, so we moved upstairs to catch up and listen to the music.
Since none of us were quite ready to call it a night, we decided to move on for one more drink at Story Hotel! Usually, they have a “backyard” patio set up, but it closes earlier than the bar so we didn’t get to enjoy the benches and cozy sofas there this time. I hope that as summer approaches, the outdoor area will stay open longer! It is a really nice place to spend time with friends.
As the weather gets warmer, I hope to spend some more time with friends in the true Stockholm style on the various colourful patios in the city!
I hope you all had an enjoyable sunny weekend! Until next time.
