Hello lovely comunity! I'm a web designer from Argentina and I am visiting Stockholm for a few days. Do you guys have any recomendations about places to visit during my stay? I'm looking for cool museums, bookstores, architecture-related things, web design events, design studios that open their doors or just cool people to get a coffee or beer. Thank you in advance!
Hi Nicolas! My name is Petri and I run design work at a Swedish startup called Narrative. We make a tiny, wearable camera and service that automatically captures life from your perspective. (https://vimeo.com/115288936)
If you'd be interested – you're welcome to swing by for a coffee/hot beverage with me and just talk design/Stockholm/life. Talk to me on twitter (@petripetri) and we'll set something up if you're up for it :)
If not - enjoy Stockholm. Perfect time to visit now in early summer.
Thanks Petri! I will reach you trough Twitter and see how we can meet. Thanks again, hope to see you!
The palace tour in Old Town is amazing from an architecture and design point of view. And the Vasa Museum (17th century ship) was fun. We got there about 45 minutes before closing and they let us in for free.
Thanks Brian! Going to check them out :)
Great place for coffee http://www.dropcoffee.com/
Worth a visit, thanks!
Fotografiska, Bonniers Konsthall (free!) & Moderna Museet are all nice museums.
Papercut is a nice magazine shop near Mariatorget.
Taverna Brillo is a good place to have beer/drinks/wine together with nice music, altough Dovas or Lion Bar would be a better alternative if you want to experience Stockholm as a broke student.
For a decent lunch and coffee, visit Snickarbacken 7 which is a cafe + clothing store inside what I think is an old repair shop.
Wow, thanks for your tips! I know about the Fotografiska, going to check it tomorrow. Thanks Gustav!
No worries, hope you had a nice stay Nicolas!
