Vasa akterspegel

Ordered by King Gustav II Adolf, a regent obsessed with status symbols, the magnificent ship Vasa sank after only 1,300m in front of spectators on its first journey in August 1628. After several failed attempts the ship was finally salvaged in 1961. Almost intact after 333 years in the water, it’s now on display here in its full glory.

Två små svin


Två små svin, or Two small pigs – This taverna, in the Årsta district, specialises in open sandwishes, Czech beer and the Scandinavian spirit, Aquavit. Its interior is heavily influenced by Danish and Czech – think patterned tiles, leather sofas and high stools, all accompanied by marble and glass lamps, as well as well-stocked bar.
The tavern was opened in 2014 by Jimmy Nygren and Kalle Olofsson, who both found inspiration in the traditional Danish open sandwisch, smorrebrod, On these you will find everything from pickled herring to pork, from raw beef to fresh beets.

Address: Årstavägen 49, Årsta

EXOPARK – Absolut Art Bar


EXOPARK – The ABSOLUT ART BAR displays amongst others works of the Swedish artist Thomas Hämén and as well as a unique sculpture towering high above the tree tops and set in the middle of the concrete jungle. We would call it a “natural artificial” oasis in the centre of Stockholm. Open all summer, it allows you to relax, have a drink or enjoy some food while enjoying the music or art experience. Thomas Hämén’s work is at the heart of the art at the bar; but it also displays sculptures by Tony Cragg, Astrid Sylwan Michael Richter and Roland Persson to name a few. Visit the Art Bar on

Address: Diligentas Hus, Sveavägen 44
