🇸🇪 Take a Fika 

Take a Fika, Stockholm

Planning to take a fika? Check out our information below!


Fika is a Swedish ritual that stands for nothing more than coffee with some goodies. In Sweden, Fika does not mean having a quick cup of coffee, but rather taking time for each other and relaxing with your coffee. Immerse yourself in the world of coffee & fika. Stockholm has plenty of hippy coffee shops, tasty bakeries with some sweetness where you can drink coffee like the best of them. Go for example for a hot cappuccino with kanelbullar (sweet cinnamon rolls), but äppelkaka or a well-stuffed smörgås is definitely also an option.

If you are in Stockholm, the daily fika cannot be missed!

🇸🇪 Vasa Museum  

Vasa Museum , Stockholm

Planning to visit the Vasa Museum? Check out our information below!


The Vasa Museum is one of the most famous sights in Stockholm. The museum is built entirely around the ship the Vasa. Until the 1960s, it lay on the seabed, but is now on display at the Vasa Museum. The ship is 69 metres long and more than 95% of it is original and decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures. With three magnificent protruding masts protruding through the museum’s roof, the museum can be seen from afar.

The ship was commissioned by King Gustav in the 17th century to stop foreign invaders. It never served that purpose, as Vasa sank shortly after its launch. Some 333 years later, in 1961, the ship was brought to the surface and restored to its former state. Today, the Vasa is the only 17th-century ship in the world still preserved in its entirety and therefore the best-visited museum in Scandinavia, with more than a million visitors a year.

Built in red brick, the iconic building is supported by a long colonnade. The halls inside are beautifully decorated. The City Hall hosts the world-famous Nobel banquet every year. After dinner in the Blue Hall, Nobel laureates, Royal Highnesses and guests go dancing in the magnificent golden hall.
