Stockholm, capital city of Sweden, is home of a lot of great things such as meatballs with mashed potatoes and lingon berry sauce, ABBA, kanelbulle (cinnamon roll), Ikea, H&M just to list a few of the most known brands noone needs an explanation for. It is also famous for its great minimalist design and designers, amazing northern lights, fjords, and some might know snus.

The first part of the name (stock) means log in Swedish, although it may also be connected to an old German word (Stock) meaning fortification. The second part of the name (holm) means islet, and is thought to refer to the islet Helgeandsholmen in central Stockholm. According to Eric Chronicles the city is said to have been founded by Birger Jarl to protect Sweden from sea invasions made by Karelians after the pillage of Sigtuna on Lake Mälaren in the summer of 1187.

Back in 2013 I had a great week in Stockholm where people are nice and not everyone’s blond (!) and there is a great mix of modern and classic architecture in the old town, so different; yet they managed to combine perfectly the two styles without being the new constructions a punch in the eye. Although it was a week of work, I could take time out to visit and enjoy a bit the city and although it was cold, it was great to run around.
