Interrailing Day 8: Another glorious day in Stockholm. A pleasant 10 degrees Celsius out. Got the guided tour of the City Hall. Found out you can get married there even if you’re not Swedish. There’s a tempting idea..! You can choose between a speedy 30 second ceremony or a slightly longer 3 min ceremony 😅💍🎊 The tour was approx. 45 minutes long and started exactly on time (of course!). ⏱Enjoyed the tour and the rooms and banquet hall was worth the visit. The tower is closed at the moment which was a pity. 🏗
For the afternoon we headed to the Vasa Museum where we spent close to 3 hours admiring the magnificent ship that is Vasa ⚓️⛵️ Had a 25 min tour of Vasa and watched the short film 🎥 The Museum also has an audio guide which you can load on your phone and follow the map to hear more information about Vasa. A pretty nifty idea. No need for renting headsets 🎧 The detail is unbelievable and it only took <2 years to build & was completed in 1628. Mind blowing. The modern 1:10 scale model took 3 years! I was really impressed with Vasa and highly recommend it as a must-see.
Couldn’t come to Sweden and not visit the epic Ikea – my favourite home store. 🏡 Caught the free shuttle bus which brings you right to the door. 🚌 It decided to rain hailstones once we got there. The Ikea we visited is the largest in Europe. We got a cheap and cheerful dinner and had a quick browse. So much home décor ideas! 💡💸
