Well worth a visit! Impressive way to store books - round library with three floors of bookshelfs. Stunning architecture, amazing temple that makes Stockholm great. Go there, sit and have a cup of silence and peace.

Book lover or not, rarely does one find himself in awe stepping in a public library. After going around for some minutes, I just felt the urge to hide behind a bookself so I could stay there longer. Definitely a must see in Stockholm.

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
most sought-after place to live. If walking through
this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy
tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s
