Nobel, Crowns, Swords and Gloves

We started in the Nobelmuseum which is quite small but very interesting. One of the most creative parts are the pictures of the laureates which are floating at the ceiling through the whole museum. It takes about 7h for every laureate to take his or her turn.

At half past 12 we watched the second part of the guard change which we missed earlier this week. When every guard had taken his place we hit the Royal Apartments to satisfy our voyeuristic feelings. More or less amazed we changed the location to the chamber where the Royal Treasury is hidden and protected. Besides the crowns and an impressive treasure chest the highlight has been the swords. These masterpieces of craftsmanship are absolutely worth the trip down there. The ‘Tre Kronor’ Museum has been closed so we hopefully manage to get their in the new Year.

We finished the sightseeing an meet up at Gallerian near Sergels Torg. Johannes and I bought some cloves and warm socks for Kiruna before we hit the hostel again.

In the evening we wanted to go to the Absolut Icebar, but as we arrived there we have been told that they are fully booked. So we had dinner at Vapiano’s in Gamla Stan before we went back to the hostel.
