We visited Stockholm and stay here for a night during our transit for our final destination in Norway.

Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, encompasses 14 islands and more than 50 bridges on an extensive Baltic Sea archipelago. Stockholm is easy in all the right ways. Despite being spread across 14 islands, it’s a relatively compact, and walking is often the best way to get around. Bridges connect most of the islands, while ferries and the tunnelbana (metro) link the rest. Public transport is safe, smooth and efficient, covering every corner of the city. Nearly all signs are written in Swedish and English, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a local who doesn’t speak near-perfect English.

Stockholm’s sense of style is legendary. Here, good design is not a luxury, it’s a right – even the humblest coffee shop is usually well designed, from its lighting right down to its cups, bowls and cutlery.

Beneath the Swedish capital lies an intricate web of underground train lines. More than 90 of the 100 stations in the 110km tunnel system, sometimes referred to as “the world’s longest art gallery”, have been decorated with paintings, installations, mosaics and sculptures by 150 artists since the 1950s. Unfortunately we haven’t get much time to explore all of the station, but we have pass few of them during our trip from the Stockholm airport to the city.

Our First Snowfall

We arrived in Stockholm during the night time. And we were welcomed by heavy snowfall. It’s literally our first snowfall during our 2016 Eurotrip. As we born and risen in the tropical county with mostly hot humid sunlight all year long, having snowfall is a magical moment for us. I grabbed my camera and walk along small park near our apartment to capture this moment.

Day 2: Stortorget

Once the scene of a bloodbath, the charming square of Stortorget is now frequented by tourists for its quaint and colourful buildings. Stortorget used to be the political heart of town until 1732, when the city hall was moved to the Bondeska Palace. In 1520, it witnessed a large execution as the Danish conqueror Kristian II had 82 Swedish dignitaries arrested and beheaded at Stortorget (all those who had opposed his rule). Today, filled with bustling cafés and benches, Stortorget is one of Stockholm’s greatest attractions.

Kungsträdgården

Kungsträdgården (Swedish for “King’s Garden”) is a park in central Stockholm. It is colloquially known as Kungsan. The park’s central location and its outdoor cafés makes it one of the most popular hangouts and meeting places in Stockholm. It also hosts open-air concerts and events in summer, while offering an ice rink[1] during winters. There is also a number of cafés, art galleries and restaurants;
