Best restaurants in Stockholm – #2.Sthlm Tapas – Лучшие рестораны Стокгольма

→ (на русском читать ниже) #2. Sthlm Tapas Who doesn’t like tapas? Surely most of us do – it’s small, tasty and amazing! Today I want to share my experience of visiting another fabulous restaurant in Stockholm called Sthlm Tapas. In fact, it is a network of 4 restaurants located at Kungsholmen, Sjöstaden, Vasastan and Gamla Stan (on the website they call it “Selected”). I have been in most of them, and my absolute favorite in this net is Sthlm Tapas at Vasastan (Torsgatan 55, closest metro S:t Eriksplan). In Spanish cuisine, the word “tapas” is used to call a wide variety of snacks, appetizers…

Best restaurants in Stockholm – #1.Tennstopet – Лучшие рестораны Стокгольма

→ (на русском читать ниже) Whenever you come to another country, you always have the interest to find out more about it, to see as many places as possible, to do unique shopping or visit the best restaurants. In a case with museums, you can always find them in most guide books, best shops are simply located on main streets, but when it comes to restaurants, it is always nice to have a personal recommendation because in this matter “central” barely means “best.” So, for the past months, I have visited a dozen of different restaurants, and there are several outright winners on my picky rating.…

Setting goals for 2017

0

Hello there!  First of all, my friends, I want to congratulate you all with the New Year 2017! I wish you to leave all the troubles behind and aim for the new bright future, love, luck, optimism, joy, and achievement of all goals. Today I want to talk specifically about setting yearly goals and life planning. In the past three years, I have gotten a new good habit of writing plans/goals at the end of December for the next year, as well as making a list of everything I have done and achieved in the past year. It allows me…

Authentic sushi in Stockholm

0

Did you know that most of sushi restaurants and sushi bars all over the world offer an adapted version of the real Japanese sushi? Rolls like Philadelphia or California just don’t exist in Japan. I was very surprised hearing it from one of my friends, who has dedicated his life to an Asian culture. And indeed, remembering my trip to Japan several years ago, I can’t recall any rolls served in restaurants, which I was so familiar with eating in Moscow or any other European city. This week I was told about a unique restaurant called Shibuya Sushi located in…

Swedish business success story / История успешного бизнеса в Швеции

0

Continuing the conversation about the peculiarities of Swedish culture and life here, today I would like to stop on the fact that Sweden, along with the other Nordic countries, is also very well known due to the large amount of successful stories of companies that have managed in a relatively short period to conquer the world, actually starting “from scratch”: for example, such well-known company giants like IKEA, Volvo, Ericsson, Spotify, H&M, Skype, Electrolux, Oriflame… and Daniel Wellington. The history of the famous watch Daniel Wellington began in 2006, when the future founder of the company Swede Filip Tysander, during…

Happy nation – Happy socks / Где искать шведское счастье?

0

Does everyone remembers so popular in the 90’s Ace of Base song “Happy nation”? So, Ace of Base is one of the most well-known Swedish bands, along with ABBA, Europe, Army of Lovers and others. Despite the fact that the song did not specify what exact nation it is about, I don’t have a single doubt that it is surely about happy Swedes after I have lived in Stockholm for more than two years. Externally, they are cold, closed and detached, but at the same time they all try to diversify a life as they can, knowing how to find…

Часы JORD – рука об руку с природой

0

После двух лет жизни в Швеции, я наконец-то научилась ценить вещи, сделанные из экологически чистых материалов, и которые не нанесут вред нашей природе после того, как придёт время их утилизировать. Как ни странно, мне нравится сортировать вещи, перед тем как отправить их на переработку – стекло, картон, пластик и тканевые вещи, всё отдельно. Это привносит некий порядок в повседневность и даёт приятное чувство того, что и ты делаешь какой-то свой маленький вклад в улучшение состояния окружающей среды. В каждом магазине здесь можно всегда найти что-нибудь с приставкой “эко-“: экопродукты, экоодежду, экокосметику, экосумки и так далее. Это означает, что все эти…

Watches JORD – together with nature

0

After two years living in Sweden, I have started valuing things that are made of ecological materials and won’t destroy our Mother Nature after their use has expired. I truly learned to enjoy recycling and to understand matters of living in harmony with our environment. In every shop here you can always find eco-food, eco-clothes, eco-bags and so on. And I really appreciate Swedish way of thinking and caring about nature. It opened my eyes to things I could have easily ignored before… For example, hand-crafted wooden watch JORD. I have seen this brand, based in St.Louis (Missouri, USA), in…

Скандинавский ночной стиль. Night Light Clothes

0

Однажды я увидела картинку шерстяных изделий от Night Light Clothes в Интернете, и сразу влюбилась в их стиль и концепцию. Эта компания производит уютные шарфы и шапки для всех возрастов с включением светоотражающих ниток в шерсть и хлопок, которые не видны днём, но начинают светиться при попадании на яркий свет (см. видео ниже). Основная цель этих зимних аксессуаров состоит в том, чтобы обеспечить безопасность всем, кто проводит много часов на улице в тёмное время суток. В последнее время, к сожалению, становится всё более опасно находиться на улице после наступления темноты, особенно для детей – зачастую путь прогулок лежит вдоль дорог с автомобильным движением, и водители не…

Night Light Clothes: Scandinavian safety in darkness

0

Once, I have seen a picture of Night Light Clothes online and fell in love with its style and concept from the first sight. It was designed to provide safety, warmth and comfort in the darkness for everyone, who spends a lot of time outside during autumn and winter months. Unfortunately, nowadays it is getting more and more dangerous to be on streets or walking along the road in dark time of the day, and wearing reflective elements becomes vital for the safety. But it is very rare to find a beautiful piece of clothes with reflectors, and not feel yourself as…

Japanese culture in Sweden / Японская культура в Швеции

0

Sweden is a country where you can meet people and experience cultures from around the world – and lucky for you there are many restaurants with Eastern cuisine and a deep reverence for Asian ideology. Has taken over the world, the fashion for sushi bars has not bypassed Scandinavia either. Swedes, just like everyone else, love to be pampered with fresh sushi and rolls. Compared with sushi restaurants in other countries, the Asian menu here is, alas, not so rich in varieties, but one thing is absolute – there is no doubt in the freshness of ingredients. Швеция – одна из немногих…

Prohibition and the Great Gatsby. America 1920s in Stockholm

0

Last Thursday, the unexpected happened – my husband, and I made a journey into history, back to the 1920s, the days of Prohibition in the United States and fashion of the Great Gatsby. We were the happy owners of two invitations to the discrete event – Prohibition Tea Party, held in the basement of the charming place called MELT Bar & Restaurant. I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped over the threshold of the front door: groovy jazz, fragrant flavor of drinks in tea cups, velvet curtains and girls in evening dresses, with long pearl beads…
