My first visit to Stockholm was in December of
2005. And I have been traveling there ever since. It’s one of my favourite
cities, but strangely in all these years I haven’t written anything about my
travels to Stockholm. So, I finally decided to fix this mistake. Now is a
perfect time for it because my memories are still fresh from our last trip that
happened last week. And in this blog post I’ll share all the things I like to
do when I am in Stockholm and tell about the places I like to go to.
I collected photos that we’ve made over the years, so don’t get confused when you see them. Some were made in summer, some in spring and some in winter. And yes, I haven’t been to Stockholm in the autumn. Yet.
One morning we decided to go to the Hungarian National museum. But it turned out to be closed that day. Which was weird because I’ve checked opening hours in the internet, and it was supposed to be open. We didn’t have any specific plans, so we stared thinking what else we could do today. And then I remembered reading reviews about the historical Metro Line 1 (yellow M1, also known as Millennium Underground), the oldest metro line in Budapest, and the second oldest in the world (opened in 1896).

Normally I would
make a list of the things I want to see or go to during our travels. But as
soon as I started reading endless TOP-5, -10, -20 things you must do in
Budapest, I quickly came to realization that it will be impossible to check
even one tenth of all the cultural and historical sights this city has to
offer. And we had only five days, even less than that because of the flight
schedule. “So, we’d better make the most of it”, thought I while packing my
Unfortunately, Munich has never been our final destination. But I’m glad we were lucky enough to have a glimpse of this beautiful city. How did we manage to do that? Easy! In order to save money, we are simply avoiding direct flights. And instead we are looking for transfer flights and searching for places where we could spend our waiting time (approximately five to seven hours*). That way we are able to see more cities and countries during our travels.
First of all, I would like to thank our good friends Dali and Ari because this magnificent holiday would not be possible without them. And thank you Dali for introducing us with your beautiful country, its culture, traditions and extremely delicious food!
If you have only one day in Belgrade, then I’d suggest you visit Kalemegdan park and Belgrade Fortress. To be in Belgrade and not see the fortress is same if you come to Rome and avoid seeing Colosseum. As for Kalemegdan (park where fortress is located) is a great place for a whole family. And if you are not that interested in exploring medieval fortress, then there are other things you could do and check in this park.
To be honest I didn’t know what to expect from Belgrade. I haven’t red much info about this city before going to Serbia because I didn’t want other people opinions to influence the first impression. Only things I knew about it:
- Belgrade is not that popular tourist destination
- It’s better to visit it in the spring and summer
- There are couple sightseeings worth visiting
