This is a city who loves to play the game of light and shadow. The high contrast and silhouette against the azure backdrop touched our heart every time we looked up at the sky.
A city surrounded by water is a city full of lives.
We had an amazing dinner at Operabaren of Operakällaren, an award-wining and Michelin one-star restaurant. To our surprise, it brought the French style out of traditional Swedish dishes. We were just planning to have meatballs, but the meal ended up being the highlight of our day.
If you look closely, the gravy and source were formed to create an ethereal texture, just like the milk form in latte.
It's also worth mentioning that the interior decor and ceiling are beautiful, a mixture of Art Nouveau and an aristocratic gentlemen's club.
With lots of parks, museums, cafes and sunshine, this calm oasis is for families and tourist alike.
Even if you ain't a family guy or fan of museums. it won't hurt to relax in a fuzzy afternoon and eat a hot dog and ice cream with polar bear.
Although not very popular among visitors, the Museum of Spirits was quite interesting. We saw the Absolut Art Collection and an exhibition dedicated to the culture of making and drinking beer. It also hosts many interactive exhibits to experience to alcohol in all senses.
The City Hall
The Stockholm City Hall stands on the eastern tip of Kungsholmen island and has great view of the city skyline. Not only the workplace for municipal councils, the City Hall is the venue of the Nobel Prize banquet held on 10 December each year and hosts citizens' wedding ceremonies. The artworks in the building are grandiose, but I guess awing viewers was the initial purpose to build such luxurious halls and murals.
It was a very fun experience to drink at below freezing point, using literally ice cube as cups. Wearing heavy-weighted cotton-padded coats and gloves, we were not able to take photo anyway, so we let go of photographers' professionalism and just partied in the rocks.
