Kungstragarden

The latest in my series of posts on my holiday in Sweden.

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the latest installment in my series of posts about my recent holiday in Sweden. Having covered Gamla Stan in my previous post it is now time to cover the other area where I did some exploring, Kungstragarden, the city centre terminus of the blue line on Tunnelbana.

AT THE SURFACE

It was obvious as soon as I had exited the station building that I had made a good call. Here are the first couple of pictures..

THE KUNGSTRAGARDEN

On entering the Kungstragarden itself the first thing I saw was this:

Beyond this is a very decorative pool…

By this stage I was thinking about lunch, and one of the various beer and burger places caught my attention. I was lured in by the ‘Nick the Greek’ burger – lamb, feta cheese, salad. I subsequently identified an impressive looking local beer, and food ordered took my place at an outside table.

Avenyn Ale – it proved by excellent.

When you place a food order you get one of these, and your food arrives is due course.

Although I was well aware that a the general expectation is that one will not eat the top half of the bun in which a burger of this nature is served I was not about to leave anything uneaten. Lunch done I resumed my explorations, looking to take a circuitous route back to the station…

My nest port of call was a park…

I was then drawn towards a waterfront (Stockholm like most Swedish cities is well supplied with water)…

There were a few more things to photograph before I got back to the station and resumed my explorations of the Tunnelbana.

Kungstragarden well repaid the time I spent exploring it, and I would recommend anyone visiting to Stockholm to include it in their itinerary.
