Sweden – Stockholm in 3 days
Stockholm is one of the most interesting cities I have been to. I have a lot of Swedish friends, I love their people. This is why I always wanted to go there and see their country.
We went to Sweden in June on their Independence Day and Stockholm was full of celebration parades and event. Swedish people have holiday on that day so city was full of people and the weather was very nice too.
Day 1 – So we went to the city centre to celebrate Stockholm’s Independence Day with locals. The ceremony was very nice to watch. From here we went straight to Nobel Museum which is located in the former Stock Exchange Building on the north side of the square Stortorget in Gamla Stan, the old town in central Stockholm.
Day 2 – On our second day we went to the Vasa Museum. The Vasa Museum (Swedish:Vasamuseet) is a maritime museum in Stockholm, Sweden. Located on the island of Djurgården, the museum displays the only almost fully intact 17th century ship that has ever been salvaged, the 64-gun warship Vasa that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628.
Day 3 – On day 3 we went to Icebar in Stockholm which is the world’s first permanent icebar. It is open all year and has a constant temperature of -7 degrees celsius (19 degrees fahrenheit). The interior is made out of sculpted ice from the arctic Torne River, just like the glasses your drink is served out of. The bar has room for up to 60 people. The entry fee includes a cocktail and a visit lasts about 40 minutes. Children are welcome, and are served a colourful kids’ drink.
ICEBAR by ICEHOTEL Stockholm is centrally located on Vasaplan, next door to Stockholm Central Station and the airport shuttle train Arlanda Express. Hotel C Stockholm is located in the same building as ICEBAR Stockholm. Since it opened in 2002, the ice bar has become a popular attraction in Stockholm, attracting both tourists and locals.
Experience was really nice, everything is made-up with Ice, chairs, glasses, everything.. You are given gloves and coat on the entrance. I would highly recommend going there if you happen to be in Stockholm.
I was really happy with my Stockholm travel, Sweden is very peaceful and save country to travel to and would love to visit again in the future.
