Hallå Stockholm! – Today we finally arrived in the beautiful city of Stockholm, Sweden.
We decided to go there as an "pre-work-holiday-trip" before heading to Finland on Saturday, since Stockholm isn't that far away from our final destination, which is Helsinki.
To be honest we haven't been that active today, mostly because our flight took off quite early in the morning. So after a two hour nap, we left our hotel to stroll through downtown Stockholm. We didn't really map out a route or follow a plan but just walked where our feet were carrying us. Which, in our opinion, is the best way to gain a first and uncut impression of every city.
Stockholm turned out to be very exciting: the locals are (mostly) very friendly, the weather was perfect and the whole city spirit is simply awesome. The only "disadvantage" is that almost everything you buy costs twice as much as in Austria.
We haven't been to one specific place but to various smaller spots, which can be easily reached by foot, like the old town of the district Gamla Stan or the palace of the royal family. We've even found a German church and a restaurant called "Zum Franziskaner" which only sells typical German food.
All in all we can say that we've really enjoyed our first day here and we're both very excited to spend the next couple days in Stockholm.
