Must visit places when you arrive in Stockholm

Hurray!!! It’s the arrival season. First thing first, Kudos to you all to have braved the pandemic and joining us at KTH. The arrival days for me was filled with excitement and anticipation about Stockholm. In this blog, I write about the places I visited that made Stockholm the home it is.

Gamla Stan: Gamla stan is an Old city right in the centre of Stockholm with architecture and This is one of the best places to hangout in Stockholm. The paths are narrow and clobber stoned. The vibe is extremely cosy and positive. My favourite waffle places are situated in Gamla stan. A nice walk here during the fall will make you fall in love with Stockholm.

City Hall: City hall is where the Nobel banquet happens every year. This was the first monument that I visited after reaching Stockholm. KTH organises student reception in this same building. It feels prestigious to share the same building as legendary Nobel laureates do.

Monteliusvägen: Monteliusvagen is a hilltop point just across Gamla Stan to get a view of Stockholm city. It fancies an amazing display of sunset and a tranquil place to hang out while observing the city buzzing with activities. This is a must-visit if you want some calm and peace and yet be within the city.

Kungsträdgården: Kungstradgarden is a park in central Stockholm. In the winter the place has ice slabs to skate on and in spring the place turns into a beautiful display of cherry blossoms.

Skansen: Skansen is an open-air museum where you have the opportunity to learn about Swedish history. The museum is a small city making you time travel to Sweden during the industrial revolutions and the attire of the people reflect the time period of the 1800s.
