A Visit to Stockholm Olympic Stadium

As part of my Nordic trip with my boyfriend, I visited Stockholm for the first time and I enjoyed it so so much! It’s a beautiful city full of history, culture, art and good vibes. Katerina Elevators which I walked up there for few times because how peaceful and pretty is up there, chill around the old town Gamla Stan and drink by the riverside etc. However, one of my favourite places to visit in Stockholm is the Olympic Stadium. 

We went there in a late morning, took the metro T14 to ‘Stadion’, which is only 3 mins ride from T-Centrelen. We also spend at least 15 minutes inside of the station as itself is a work of art. It’s about 3 minutes walk from the station to the entrance of the stadium and it’s free to enter.

As soon as I walked inside the stadium, I was amazed. Do you know when you feel very emotional connections to historical figures or places? Yeah, that.

“OMG, this is where 1912 Summer Olympics happened and 105 years later I am here!” I just stood there for a while with tears slowing filling my eyes. It’s a little weird but it’s a wonderful feeling at the same time. 

It was very quite also, only another visitor like us who’s walking around and taking pictures and 2 girls who seem like have just finished their training. Brick walls, wooden seats, fresh-cut pitch…. It’s a classic, venerable and simply stunning stadium oozes history.

It hosts concerts and Djurgårdens IF Women team’s matches and free cross-country trail during winter (would be a great experience)! Although it didn’t seem like to be a big attraction for the tourists, I would say it is a MUSE-SEE spot!
