Fave




One of my must-go-to places in Stockholm is Rosendals Trädgård; I love spending an afternoon there at a table under an apple tree enjoying a fika. When we went this time the light was amazing, the whole place had that beautiful backlit look that was just begging to be photographed. I kept thinking "I'll take some pictures as we leave" but I left it too long, the light had gone by the time I was ready. You snooze you lose! These don't do the place justice but you'll have to take my word for it. If you find yourself in town do go, they're open all year round and it's apparently really cosy in winter too!

  1. The garden looks really nice, but what's a "fika"? :)

  2. Looks like a lovely place. Makes me feel like I've missed out on something; although I lived in Stockholm for three years I've never been there.
    Maybe I'll go when I visit Stockholm next week.

    Thanks for posting this!

  11. I went there a few days before winter solstice and it was magical: white hyacinths blooming on the tables, a fire blazing in the pot-bellied stove. I love discovering what you found in the city.
