Ian. Recently I had the opportunity to visit one of our clients in Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm is an amazing city, the architecture is amazing, the city is clean and the weather is … not terrible. I’ve been here before but this time I wanted to document something that really stood out to me in my last visit. The doors of Stockholm.
Stockholm is an old city, founded in 1252. When you walk around the city you see these buildings that are hundreds of years old, beautifully designed and filling the banks of the river. Coming from Canada, where we are just about to turn 150, buildings this old are few and far between. I was fortunate enough to visit during their summer which, according to the locals, is very short and not overly warm. Downtown Stockholm is such a walkable area, with everything you need. You have amazing access to Gamla Stan, the never ending waterfront, Skansen and the up and coming Sodermalm. And while the city is super walkable, if you get a chance to check out their Cave Stations, they’re amazing.
