If you can be arsed, my architectural recommendation would be Sigurd Lewerentz's 1956 church St Mark's in the suburb of Bjorkhagen…




…or the woodland cemetery which has a few gems from Lewerentz and Gunnar Asplund…




https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skogskyrkogården

… and if you find yourself in Malmö, Lewerentz's flower kiosk


Classic stuff Cool

Cemetery in a nice option. Went there in a sunny day in winter, all covered in snow, and was great.

Maybe not if you've got just 2\3 days, but otherwise definitely worth going.

Enjoyed Pelikan for dinner; meatballs, elk and reindeer meat. Bit noisy maybe but nice place overall

Barobao was decent and pretty inexpensive for lunch. Soeciriet was also pretty good. They do a good lunch menu.I also went to a decent Bengali place in Sodermalm which was good.

Acne Archive was pretty shit imo, so avoid unless you're a big fan. Our Legacy Workshop was worth a visit. There's some decent thrift shops where you can pick up some good 2nd hand clothes.

It's a pretty cool place, but bring your credit card. My wife was preggars, so wasn't drinking much. It's every bit as expensive as it's made out to be.

use a monzo or revolut card instead of credit card. fuck a transaction fee every time you want a beer. (stockholm is largely moving towards cashless in every aspect of living)

some recommendations from a messenger I know (probably on the cheaper end of the scale though)

My cousin has said that the restaurant in the fotografiska is well worth a visit. I would also take a pre paid card, as they seemed to have started accepting cash less and less since I last went. Great for locals but not for tourists if you are caught out without a good exchange rate!

^Fotografiska & the restaurant/bar are both worth a visit.
Snickerbacken 7 was a memorable fika spot.
Also, become familiar with Systembolaget and their open hours if you wish to buy (good) beer at a decent price.

Had a nice walk to the Kaknästornet (very brutalist TV tower) when I went there.

Cafe at the top, from where you have a great view of the city\surroundings.

Forgot to say, Fabrique makes the best kanelbullar. I know they are a chain, with a couple in London, but they genuinely are the best!

Flying out on boxing Day for a few nights. Has anyone stayed in the grand hotel or recommend alternatives? If it's stuffy then I'm not too fussed about it.
