A Monday in Stockholm

If I had known that Monday is the day when the majority of Stockholm's museums are closed, I would have booked different days. But what do you do in such a situation when on top of it it's raining? 
As with everything, you have to make the best out of it. I went to the few attractions that were open; first stop the Storkyrkan Cathedral.

St George and the Dragon

After wandering around Gamla Stan, I headed towards Slussen to visit the K.A. Almgren Silk Weaving Mill. 

I then went to Fotografiska, a must-see for any photography lovers. I was so overwhelmed by Anders Petersen's exhibition that I didn't take any photos. 
For lunch I followed the recommendation of blogger-foodie Jan Nielsen who is based in Luxembourg. He had left me a comment to try out the sushi restaurant Rakultur.  
The rolls I had (salsify and salmon) were exquisite and very carefully prepared. The soy sauce was served in a small glass with a brush inside. Green tea was complimentary. A very good place and excellent value for money. The only negative was that I ordered a side wakame salad that was, unfortunately, never served.

I spent the rest of the afternoon doing window shopping, stopping at H&M brands such as & Other Stories, COS (my favourite in general) and, yes, H&M.  

I decided to leave all the museum sightseeing for Tuesday. Not that I had much of a choice anyway. 
This was my dinner: pasta with feta salad at Sandy's near my hotel. Very tasty!

  1. Lovely photos! I wondered why Gamla Staan & Slussen sounded familiar, but remember they were featured loads in the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo books!
    Hugs xoxo

  2. Ah too bad about all the closed museums! I find that museum closures happen on such odd days, but I guess they have to remain open on weekends. Sounds like you made the most of the day anyway, I love these shots of the city!

  3. Stockholm looks amazing! Sorry to hear that the museums were closed on Monday. Spending the day wandering around the city and doing window shopping instead sounds great. The sushi looks very good!

  4. The pasta salad looks delishh! It looks like so much fun there :)

  5. Hope you are having a good time and thanks for listening although service should not make those mistakes.. the Big-sister restaurant in the same building is called Esperanto and is repeatedly been mentioned as best in Stockholm... haven't tried it myself.

    I wrote of Råkultur last year here: http://www.what2how2.com/2013/08/how-2-enjoy-sushi-rakultur-swe.html and for next time feel free to ask or check out the map http://www.what2how2.com/p/map.html .... I already have some more ideas for you :)

    Have fun

  6. It looks beautiful there, especially at night!
