Stockholm Encounter guidar oss

Stockholm Encounter at

Lonely Planets behändiga Encounter-serie expanderar vidare, och i höst har turen kommit till bland annat Stockholm, Bangkok, Tokyo och Köpenhamn. Vad står det då egentligen i en färsk guidebok för Stockholm? Här är Stockholm Encounters inledande Highlights, författade av Australiern Cristian Bonetto:

1. Gamla Stan"…Thankfully, most of the heavy tourism souvenir hunting is concentrated along VästerlÃ¥nggatan and Stora Nygatan, making it rather easy to avoid if you’ve no interest in ceramic vikings, Dalahäst key chains or Absolut Swede shot glasses."

2. Moderna Museet"…Moderna Museets killer modern-art collection is sharper than ever…"

3. Swedish Design"Stockholmers rattle off the names of designers the way Angeleons rattle on about botox."

4. Östermalms Saluhall"Yet despite its high-class tendencies, this temple of fine food is a sublimely cosy affair."

5. Stockholm by balloon"From 1000ft, the Swedish capital oozes fairy-tale appeal – picture princely turrets, gingerbread townhouses and the navy-blue Baltic weaving its way around thousands of islands."

6. Djurg̴rden Р"Most metropolises would kill for Djurg̴rden."

7. Street – "…has morphed from a humble collection of stalls into Stockholm’s hippest hangout."

8. MillesgÃ¥rden – "…a breathtaking combo of fountains, terraces and sparkling views over the waters of Värtan."

9. Stockholm Archipelago – "Stockholmer’s favourite summer playground."

SÃ¥ nu vet vi vad vi ska göra i helgen!
