Recently, I was looking back on past blog posts and realized it had been a while since I updated The Stockholm Series. Over the course of the winter, I lacked a little photography inspiration, since everything in the city seemed to be gray and dull. Thankfully, spring has finally arrived in Stockholm, I thought it would be the perfect time to go out and explore the city, camera in hand.
If any of you are wondering what the heck The Stockholm Series is, it’s basically where I try to help you guys explore the different areas and islands that make up Stockholm. I tend to run a little wild with the amount of pictures I feature, I can’t help it, I get a little carried away when I see beautiful buildings and landscapes. This is the third post of it’s kind, and I’m hoping to do another two before I move at the end of July. Now that I’ve finished rambling on, let’s talk about this awesome part of town.
Östermalm is one of Stockholm’s most notable neighborhoods. Usually when you mention Östermalm to people they have one of two possible reactions: They get excited about all the designer brands and fancy restaurants, or they are horrified by how expensive it is. I must admit, the price tag is steep if you want to spend a day shopping or eating in this area. However, if you’re just there for a scenic stroll, you’re in luck. This area of town is filled with beautiful buildings, green parks and a beautiful boardwalk view. My favorite things to do in Östermalm include: walking around Humlegården, grabbing a coffee near the boat docks and window shopping, of course.
