Where to go,What to do : Stockholm,Sweden

Hello, back with another travel experience! I’ve enjoyed a bit of the Scandinavian summer, more precisely in Stockholm, Sweden. Contrary to popular beliefs the city was quite warm! You could enjoy bike rides or boat tours without having to fear the cold or wind. Stockholm is quite a particular city. It is an archipelago on the Baltic sea, divided in 14 little island and 57 bridges ( never getting tired of this fun fact) half surrounded by seawater, half by a lake.

Hello, je vous retrouve avec un nouveau chapitre voyage! J’ai profité d’un peu d’été scandinave, à Stockholm en Suède. L’été est plutôt chaud en Scandinavie! On peut sans problème profiter de la ville en balade à vélo ou en tour en bateau sans avoir peur du froid ou du vent. Stockholm est une ville assez particulière. C’est un archipel sur la mer baltique, divisé en 14 îles reliées par 57 ponts ( je me fatiguerai jamais de ce fun fact). Il est entouré à moitié par la mer, à moitié par un lac.

Ciao, oggi una nuova avventura viaggio! Mi sono un pò goduta l’estate scandinava, a Stoccolma in Svezia. L’estate le temperature sono abbastanza alte! Si può andare in bici o girare in barca senza aver paura del freddo o del vento. Stoccolma è una città abbastanza particolare. È un arcipelago sul mare baltico, diviso in 14 isole connesse da 57 ponti ( non mi stanco mai discrivere questo dettaglio). La città è circondata a metà dal mare a metà da un lago.

Around town

There is plenty of sights you can grasp across the city, you can browse around every neighborhood with ease each having its particular architecture. For example Gamla stan is more medieval and is the old town. Normally I wouldn’t take transportation around a city that I want to discover but I made an exception here. The city has amazing subway art! A handful of metro station have their own theme, color palette, and vibe worth seeing. The old and the new are constantly intertwined!

Il y a beaucoup de paysages à percevoir tout autour de la ville, chaque quartier à ses particularités. Par exemple  Gamla Stan est la partie médiévale qualifiée de vielle ville et l‘épicentre de Stockholm. Normalement je ne prends pas les transports dans une nouvelle ville que je veux découvrir mais là je devais faire une exception. La ville a des galleries de métro magnifiques! Quelques stations metro ont chacune leur thème, leur palette couleur et leur ambiance qu’il faut découvrir.

Ci sono tantissimi paesaggi da scoprire nella città, ogni quartiere ha i suoi particolari. Per esempio Gamla Stan è la vecchia città medievale, l’epicentro della città.Normalmente non giro con i trasporti in una nuova città che voglio scoprire, ma dovevo fare un’eccezione qui. La città ha delle gallerie di metro stupende ! Alcune di esse hanno i loro affreschi , palette di colori e ambiance che sono da scoprire.

   Food

The food is incredible! I highly recommend trying the fish there, especially the salmon available in every possible dish. The fika is also to try, a typical dessert! It’s a bun with cardamom or cinnamon.

La nourriture était vraiment excellente! Je conseille vivement d’essayer le poisson, surtout le saumon, disponible à toutes les sauces. Une de leur patisseries typique aussi est un incontournable, le fika , qui est un gâteau à la cardamome ou à la canelle.

Il cibo è veramente buono! Il pesce è decisamente da provare, soprattutto il salmone, fatto in ogni modo. Anche il loro dessert tipico è da assaggiare il fika ( non avrei potuto neanche inventarmelo il nome) che è spesso al cardamomo o alla cannella.

Subway art

A few subway station have underground art, each their theme. They have a color scheme, Artists have decorated them with statues, ornaments, colored lights and installations to make it seem like a big art gallery!

Quelques stations de metro ont des galleries souterraines arborées de décors à thème. Elles ont chacunes leurs palettes de couleurs, les artistes  les ont décorées avec des statues,lumières colorées pour qu’elles aient l’air d’une vraie gallerie d’art!

Alcune stazioni di metro hanno le gallerie sotterranee con rilievie con ogni volta  temi diversi. Hanno ognunai propri colori, e gli artisti le hanno decorate con delle statue,luci colorate per che abbiano l’aria di essere gallerie d’arte!

  The city is also worth discovering by boat!

La ville vaut aussi le coup en bateau!

Vale anche la pena visitare la città in barca !

 

Things to see

The city has incredible museums from the Nobel museum located in the old central bank, to an outdoor one located further down the neighborhood and most of them are free. There is also the Royal Palace, worth seeing that has regular parades! Each zone has its characteristic traits worth seeing.

La ville a aussi des musées incroyables.Du musée Nobel qui se trouve dans l’ancienne Banque centrale dans la ville, à un autre complètement à ciel ouvert, et beaucoup d’entre eux sont gratuits. Il y a aussi le Palais Royal qui vaut le coup et a des parades régulièrement! Chaque zone a ses caractéristiques intéressantes.

La città ha dei musei stupendi! Dal museo Nobel che si trova nella vecchia banca centrale dalla città al museo all’aria aperta, c’è veramente di tutto e molti di essi sono gratis. Anche il Palazzo Reale che è molto bello e ha regolarmente dei cortei! Ogni zona ha le sue caratteristiche interessanti.

Cafés

It’s really embedded in the Swedish culture to go take a break and head to a café. To meet up, take a coffee and pastries. So you’ll see a lot of them around Stockholm! Thanks for reading see you soon!

Cela fait vraiment partie de la culture Suédoise d’aller se poser et se retrouver dans un café. Se retrouver prendre un café et des pâtisseries. Il y en a donc énormément dans Stockholm! Merci de la lecture à bientôt!

Fa veramente parte della cultura Svedese, ritrovarsi in un bar e rilassarsi con gli amici. Per un caffè o dei pasticcini. Ce ne sono tanti intorno a Stoccolma! Grazie e ci ritroviamo presto!
