13-16 september 2002: Stockholm City

Stockholm , the town of the Vikings, the town of the bicycles, the town where people have a boat.

The summer was exceptional, very good weather , better then in most of europe, but when I was there I had a good day but afterwards it was cold and windy.

The living is relax and people tend to be friendly  but not too personal. Nothing like in the south of Europa. The alcoholic drinks are too expensive to believe (4-5 euro),but if you search you'll find restaurants enough with a reasonable price.
Stockholm is more like a ''strolling''- city: nice to walk and bike around especially in Gamla Stan the oldest part of town. It is one of the most tidy cities I've ever seen.

Some restaurants visited: Mc Donalds (US) , Markattans (SWE), Maharadjah (Indian), Serimner(SWE), Ulla Winbladh (Swe), Wokhouse (guess yourself ...)

I'm not really  a museum -person, I'm more nature oriŽnted, but if you get cold weather, what do you do ? I visited some like Skansen, Birka, Drottningholm all too expensive for what you get in return. And then there was Vasa: even I was impressed, absolutely one of the best I've ever seen. A must do.
