7 tips on what to see, do and eat in London | ThatSwedishTraveller

Tall skyscrapers with stunning views, lovely shopping at Camden Market and a pint or two at the local pub. Come along to London – a city full of experiences and places to discover. On a weekend you can do a lot in London, especially if you know where to go. Experience the magical world of Harry Potter, great restaurant visits and shopping – here are my 7 best tips for a wonderful weekend in London.

To see and do in London

There is obviously a lot of things to see and do in London, but here are some of my tips from my recent trip to this lovely city.

See the London skyline at Sky Garden

Head to Sky Garden, the building known as the ‘walkie talkie’ by Londoners and located in London’s financial district. 155 meters and 35 floors up you will find this amazing space, with high ceilings and windows in every direction, filled with lush plants and a view that is amazing. Go out on the outdoor terrace to soak up all of London below you! Get an excellent 360 degree view of London’s landmarks such as the River Thames, Tower Bridge and The Shard. Then sit down for a while in the cafe or bar. It is free to visit Sky Garden, but remember to book a time slot for the visit on their website!

Shopping in Camden Town

There are several lovely neighbourhoods in London and Camden Town is one of them. Take a walk to Camden Market and The Stables Market. Here you can stroll among small alleys and shop everything from jewellery and tea to vinyl records and clothing. Also, do not miss the food market with colourful street food from around the world. In Camden it is also common to see performances by talented street musicians, pop-up shops and other fun events.

Experience the magic of the Harry Potter studio tour

If you are a big fan of Harry Potter, like me, you should not miss out on visiting Warner Bros Studios in London. Book a time slot through the website and head out to the 50,000 square foot building where the Harry Potter films were filmed for over 10 years. Seeing the props, characters and environments is a fantastic experience for the whole family. Try flying on a broom, visit Diagon Alley and see how the costumes and masks for all the magical creatures were created.

Eat well in London

There is an incredible range of restaurants and nightlife in London. Here are some tips on mouthwatering food and drinks. Eat Mexican street food, eat a luxurious hotel breakfast at a boutique hotel or eat a giant Argentinian dinner – in London the possibilities are endless!

Mexican food party at Wahaca

Visit Wahaca for fresh Mexican food with a wonderful concept created by Masterchef UK winner Thomasina Miers. Here you will find loads of colourful dishes, such as tacos, nachos and quesadillas. My favourite on the menu? The rib eye tacos! Don’t miss the drinks here either, which are as colourful as they are good!

Hotel breakfast at The Pilgrm

The boutique hotel The Pilgrm in Paddington offers a refreshing break from the usual. The design here exudes a warm sense of calm and offers you a unique moment in London’s historic Paddington. The lounge and terrace on the first floor are both open daily between 07:00 and 22:30. The brunch menu includes traditional English breakfast, avocado toast and the slightly sweeter French toast. They also serve great coffee!

Experience the Argentine cuisine at Gaucho

Visit the meat restaurant Gaucho and step into another world full of Argentine aromas and flavours. The stylish interior and dull light breathes luxury. Take a drink or go straight to ordering fantastic meat dishes. This is where the Argentinian cuisine is in focus and before you have had a good look at the menu, the staff has come in with a large tray with different pieces of meat, and tells you what is available for the evening. If you are several people who want to share the food you should take the opportunity to order a meat tray with 4 different kinds of meat, 1.2 kilos! Perfect if you want to test a little bot of each, served together with wonderfully buttery mashed potatoes and great sauce. Remember to book a table in time!

Address: 89 Sloane Ave (available in several places)

Have a pint at Pride of Paddington

What is a visit to Englad without having a pint at a real British pub? Visit the cozy pub Pride of Paddington which is beautifully decorated with flowers. There are several different beers here and the pub is also a hostel, so be prepared for some happy backpackers. What exactly is a pint? It is a 0.5 liter volume that only applies to beer and cider in the UK.

Gastro Natur on Hjälmaren in Örebro, Sweden | ThatSwedishTraveller

Escape the ordinary gastronomic experience with Gastro Natur 2019 on the Swedish lake Hjälmaren

This blogpost was written in collaboration with Katrinelunds Gästgiveri & Sjökrog and Visit Örebro.

A couple of weeks ago I visited Gastro natur on the lake Hjälmaren, this was one of three gastronomic experiences with Örebrokompaniet this year. In short the concept was a pop-up restaurant in an unexpected environment, e.g. in the middle of the forest, out on a lake or down in a mine. Me and about 25 other guests was served an innovative menu of locally sourced ingredients on the lake. This was for sure an unforgettable nature experience.

The raft

First off we took a bus about 40 min from Örebro out to Katrinelunds gästgiveri, who was responsible for the food of the night. Then we were greeted with champagne on a beautiful raft with live music. We all got onboard and the owner and head chef of Katrinelunds gästgiveri told us about tonights menu and how the night was going to unfold. Thereafter we had 3 smaller dishes while we slowly sailed out to the actual floating restaurant.

The floating restaurant and the menu

Have you ever seen anything like this? We were greeted by one of the chefs as we slowly approached the floating restaurant. We got onboard and we all fell in love with this tiny restaurant, complete with kitchen and grill onboard.

The food was absolutely amazing. 9 dishes in total with natural flavours of Sweden. A fine selection of fish, lamb and vegetarian dishes.

 

The 360 view was breathtaking from the floating restaurant. A fun fact is that the lake Hjälmaren actually is Swedens 4th biggest lake but it is not deep at all, we could all get in and it was only knee-high! The deepest parts of Hjälmaren are about 22 meters though.

Behind the scenes

Was there a toilet?! Yes! Of course we were all wondering how it would work since we were all in the middle of a lake. But trust me, the solution was great! Have you ever seen a toilet in a nicer environment? This mini toilet was just perfect!

But what about the dishes? Easy! In the middle of the evening the raft came back to get the dishes and also to deliver our dessert. In the mean time the dishes was kept in the water as seen in the picture below. So smart!

An amazing night!

I can not stress enough what an amazing night and experience Gastro natur truly was. If you have the chance to book it, do so! I am so curious about the two other pop-up restaurants in the woods and down the mine, I want to experience those as well. For now, just let me thank the amazing team from Katrinelunds Gästgiveri for excellent service and food and also a big thanks to Örebrokompaniet who invited me to this amazing experience.

Enjoy Old Towns most beautiful hotel Victory Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden | ThatSwedishTraveller

Experience Stockholms naval history at Victory Hotel

This blogpost was written in collaboration with The Collector´s Hotels.

Near the metro station in Old Town, Stockholm (Sweden) you will find the gorgeous Victory hotel. The hotel is part of the three Collector´s Hotels, all found in Old Town, owned by the antique collectors the Bengtsson family. The Victory Hotel is a personal and exclusive hotel and it’s even a tourist attraction in itself with its unique private collection of maritime antiques, passionately selected by the founder, Gunnar Bengtsson.

A bit of history

Victory hotel is the largest hotel among the Bengtsson family’s private hotels in Old Town and it’s named after the British naval hero Lord Nelson’s ship, HMS Victory. The Victory Hotel opened its doors in 1987. The hotel has many stories to tell, but the most significant one is probably the fact that historic relics still hide in the building. In the beautiful breakfast and conference room, remnants of Leijontornet can be seen, a tower that was once part of the defense wall in Stockholm in the 14th century. The Victory hotel will leave you speechless and even more curious about Stockholms naval history.

The reception (and whole hotel) is filled with maritime antiques and curious artefacts that all bears an interesting story. One of the stories is the love between naval hero Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton who’s love letter is found in the reception. I find it very interesting with these true stories and all the memorabilia that is found within the Collector’s collection!

The reception

The rooms

The hotel has borrowed its name from a British ship, but all the rooms are named after a Swedish sea captain. Every room contains photos, memorabilia and interesting facts about the captain that the room is named after, including a model of his ship. All the rooms have a genuine feel and a personal touch, and the hotel offer everything from comfortable single rooms to a stunning 18th century suite.

I stayed one night in the lovely room “Kapten Svensson” and was greeted with a luxurious kit of strawberries, chocolate and champagne. The room was spacious with a nice little view of the Old Town street outside. The room was as promised filled with photos, a model ship and other memorabilia. My favourite detail was the port wine carefully set out on the bedside table. Such small details really make the whole experience so much nicer!

Wow what a welcoming!

The restaurants and bars

Inside the hotel you will find the popular and award-winning restaurants, Djuret and Flickan, the comfortable bar Tweed and the wine bar The Burgundy.

I went for a drink at the bar Tweed, it is lovely decorated with big and comfortable arm chairs, but as the hotel also has a beautiful courtyard I decided to sit outside and enjoy a very well made Moscow Mule. The courtyard is found if you take the narrow stairs up one floor, the courtyard it’s very well hidden from the outside. I think that the bars and restaurants are very well known to the Stockholmers, for those who know, if you get me! This is not a place you stumble upon, but a place to be recommended to and then explored. Good thing I can recommend this to you now then, right?

Sit outside if the weather allows!

I didn’t have dinner at the hotel this time, but I hope to visit soon and share my experience with you. Djuret and Flickan are supposed to be two of Stockholms best restaurants!

The breakfast

The breakfast at Victory hotel is served in a lovely setting, in the cellar of the hotel, and there is most definitely something for everyone on the buffet. From cold dishes to warm – the food is well prepared and best enjoyed with a cup of Swedish coffee. Sit and eat for a long while, be amazed by the old defense wall and prepare for a full day in Stockholm!

My overall impression is very good of the Victory hotel. The staff is lovely, the location perfect, the rooms gorgeous and the food and drinks amazing. There’s really not much that can be improved at the Victory hotel. I do recommend to come here during low season to explore all the areas of the hotel without any stress.

Visit the other Collector’s hotels Lady Hamilton and Lord Nelson to enjoy even more history and amazing antiques.

10 Instagram spots in Bucharest | ThatSwedishTraveller

10 Instagram friendly spots in Bucharest, Romania

Are you looking for the perfect photo spots in Bucharest? Here are some places you must visit for an Instagram friendly photo shoot.

  1. The English Passage  – Pasajul Englez

The history of this place dates back to 1855. A jeweler from Vienna arrived in 1837 and built the Resch House on Calea Victoriei. The house was sold and turned into the “English Hotel” (a hotel for the English merchants). The passage was built to have more hotel rooms.

The passage was a hotel for only a few years. It was later on transformed into a large luxury brothel. The brothel functioned until 1947, then it was closed and converted into apartments by the communist authorities, which banned prostitution.

The atmosphere at the passage today is quite hostile. Romanian people live in these old apartments and they are not very fond of tourists staying there for too long. So if you’re having a photo shoot here – make sure to be quiet and quick!

2. The Bookshop – Cărturești Carusel

This amazing book shop is located in the Old Town of Bucharest. The staff is very friendly and they are also used to the photo shoots in the shop. The store is 4 stories high and hosts a great café. The name of the place makes sense when you arrive – it looks like a carousel with swirling architecture!

3. Arcul de Triumf

As Bucharest is known as “Little Paris” it’s only fair that they have their own version of Arc de Triomphe. The arc is located in the middle of a roundabout in the middle of the way between the airport and the city centre. To get to the arc you have to walk on a special lined road for pedestrians. It’s 27 m high and the architecture is stunning!

4. The Umbrella Passage – Pasajul Victoria

Probably the most instagrammed place in Bucharest! Enjoy a great meal at the pizzeria in the passage or visit the hidden underground café (it’s in a closed down underground station).

5. The Parisian passages – Pasajul Vilacrosse and Pasajul Macca

These two passages are amazing! They meet where I stand in the picture below and the passages are both inspired by Paris with detailed architecture. This area is known for its sisha bars. Come here for a great photo shoot and enjoy a sweet smelling sisha afterwards.

6. Fabrica

This pub is located a bit outside of town, but is absolutely worth the travel. It’s a beer garden with amazing street art, and the building is an old fabric.

7. Palace of the Patriarchate – Palatul Patriarhiei

A building with neo-classical style facade and a lot of history during the communist regime. The building is surrounded by an old church and other buildings forming “The Vatican” of Bucharest. Add some gold to your Insta feed!

8. The Art Tower in Pantelimon

You can find this old water tower in the suburban area called Pantelimon. Its surrounded with great street art and the tower is a cool addition to your feed.

9. Carol Park – Parcul Carol

This park is perfect for an outside shoot. Here you’ll find the Mausoleum, (Mausoleul din Parcul Carol), known during the Communist régime as the “Monument of the Heroes for the Freedom of the People and of the Motherland, for Socialism”, which is now a Military Museum. The boulevard in the park is perfect for OOTD pics.

10. Romanian Athenaeum – Ateneul Român

This is a magnificent concert hall and a landmark of the Romanian capital city. The architecture is stunning and this will also add som royal vibes to your feed.

Travel Guide: 3 days in Bucharest Romania | ThatSwedishTraveller

Experience Bucharest – 72 hours in the capital of Romania

Have you ever been to Bucharest, Romania? No? This lively city should definitely be your next destination. If you are interested in exploring one of the most underestimated capitals in Europe this is the travel guide for you. I’m sure you’ll be looking at flights after reading this guide!

I spent 72 hours exploring Bucharest and I will share with you the ultimate city guide. You can do this trip over a weekend but since the city is very much alive it’s also great to travel here during the weekdays (which is normally cheaper too!). 

Bucharest is a city full of old history and new ideas. It’s shown everywhere – from the architecture to the friendly people. I’ll guide you through what to eat, see and do in Bucharest and even where you find the most Instagrammable spots!

But first, a quick bit of Bucharest history and facts;

  • Bucharest (București) is the capital and largest city of Romania, which was formed in 1859 and gained independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1877. 
  • Bucharest is also called “Little Paris” or “Paris of the East” (Micul Paris) because of the French influences commonly shown in the architecture.
  • Bucharest is the sixth-largest city in the European Union (by population within the city limits). 1,8 million people live in Bucharest.

And a bit of Romanian facts;

  • Population: 20 million people
  • Currency: RON – Romanian Leu
  • Language: Romanian
  • Share boarders with: Ukraine, Hungary, Moldavia, Bulgaria and Serbia
  • Time zone: Summer = UTC +3 EEST. Winter = UTC +2 EET.
  • Most common religion: Christian ortodox

What to see in Bucharest

Palace of the Patriarchate – Palatul Patriarhiei

Address: Strada Patriarhiei

An amazing building with neo-classical style facade with a lot of history during the communist regime. The building is surrounded by an old church and other buildings forming “The Vatican” of Bucharest.

Romanian Athenaeum – Ateneul Român

Address: Strada Benjamin Franklin 1-3

A magnificent concert hall and a landmark of the Romanian capital city.

Carol Park – Parcul Carol

Address: Bulevardul Mărășești

This beautiful park is perfect for a stroll or a picnic. There you will also find the Mausoleum, (Mausoleul din Parcul Carol), known during the Communist régime as the “Monument of the Heroes for the Freedom of the People and of the Motherland, for Socialism”, which is now a Military Museum.

Memorial of Rebirth – Memorialul Renaşterii

Address: Piața Revoluției

A memorial that commemorates the struggles and victims of the Romanian Revolution of 1989. Its also known as the potato on a stick, the egg, the impaled potato and the nest. Apparently not even the Romanian people knows the name or understands this piece of art, therefore it’s now mostly tagged with graffiti and skaters use the area below it to skate and do tricks.

The red dots

These dots can be found on over 300 buildings in Bucharest and the signs explains that these buildings are in real danger to collapse if an earthquake would appear. Bucharest is the European capital that has the most earthquakes. Many people still live in these houses and apartments, while some are entirely empty.

The Arch of Triumph – Arcul de Triumf din București

Address: Piața Arcul de Triumf

As Bucharest is known as “Little Paris” of course there is a mini version of the Arch of Triumph. It’s not so small actually, it’s 27 m to the top and it’s not yet opened to the public. Rumours has it that it will open in 2019 to the public – let’s cross our fingers that it’s true! The arch is situated in the middle of a big roundabout so make sure to be careful when crossing over to this beautiful landmark.

What to eat in Bucharest

Have you ever tried Romanian food? No? Well, it’s time to book a full dinner because there is plenty of great food from the Romanian kitchen. And don’t worry if you want food from other places too, Bucharest is full of tasty restaurants that will keep you full and ready to explore more.

Romanian food tour with My Secret Romania

Address: Strada Pitar Moș 23

Visit the traditional restaurant “La Copac” and eat amazing food from Romania. While dining you learn about Romanian history and if you’re lucky you even get to know what the patterns on the traditional blouses mean. I recommend to book a food tour to really get to know the history about the traditional Romanian kitchen.

Bread and mashed beans

Sausages and potatoes in basil, with red onions

Our guide explaining the patterns

Manuc’s Inn – Hanul lui Manuc

Address: Hanul lui Manuc

A traditional restaurant that offers both set menus and an a la carte in Romanian food. Dine in a big and open space and be surprised when music suddenly starts playing and the staff suddenly comes out wearing traditional clothes and starts to show you different dances from all around Romania. Pro tip: try the Romanian red wine, it’s very good!

When in Romania you need to try “Telemea” – a cheese similar to feta cheese, but in my opinion – even better! Try both the salty and the sweet options.

Traditional dish “Sarmale” – Cabbage rolls filled with meat or vegetables, served with polenta and sour cream.

NOMAD SkyBar

Address: Etaj 1, Strada Smârdan 30

Eat, drink and dance. Visit this restaurant and bar for great drinks and food from all over the world – do a nomadic culinary trip. The skybar gives you a great view of the city center. NOMAD is located in Old Town and to enter the restaurant you have to take an elevator straight from the street up to the restaurant.

Taqueria El Torito

Address: Strada Apolodor 3

Visit an authentic Mexican restaurant for the best margaritas in town and amazing tacos. There are two restaurants by El Torito and we visited the one with the address above. This restaurant offers you great food and a great Mexican vibe – the staff is also very friendly and will help you find the best dishes for you on the menu. If you come during warm months their decorated patio is open, a very nice place to dine.

Hop Garden

Address: Splaiul Unirii 225

Great food, great beer and a of course – a great time! Hop Garden won’t leave you disappointed – and definatly not hungry! Just look at the size of that burger! The kitchen is a mix of burgers, pastas, Romanian food and Mexican. Pro tip: order a dish with grilled meat or chicken, it’s really good!
