Although not big and quickly browsed through, this is nevertheless a nice piece of architecture to experience and on a short walking distance from the buzzing parts of the city.

Although it is not pompous as the royal library this one is also very interesting and it is a very good way if you are interested how is the daily life of the local students going.

Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost
looks too good to be true. It has the winning
combination of a central location, tranquility, and
beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and
eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s

this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy
tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s
