    We stayed at Hotel J (gorgeous) in Stockholm and had a first row seat to the fountain. So beautiful, like all the city itself.

    If you're bored of walking in the nature reserve, hunting for runestones in the area is a nice diversion. You can find the specific GPS points online and then make your route.

    We visited at a time when it was free entry. It is a beautiful peaceful place where I sat on a bench inside to take in the the atmosphere.

    Sigtuna is a charming little village, the oldest in Sweden founded 980, with heaps of rune stones. The official website states - “No other place in the world is as rich in runic stones as Sigtuna. Counting even small fragments unearthed here, well over 40 have been documented just in Sigtuna town. The number rises to 170 when including the whole municipality.”

    The Rune Stone Walk in this lovely mediaeval town, includes a total of twelve rune stones, with another three around Garnsviken, a lake just outside of the village. The online information is great, which also includes a map for the walk. There is also a rune stone next to Sigtuna Museum, which has an information board about the walk, rune stones and a map, (see photo below of info board). Some fragments of stones can be found incorporated into ruins, the information does outline which ones this applies to. The rune stones in Sigtuna are from the second half of the 11th century.

    Sigtuna is a peaceful little village and it was wonderful to be able to stroll around hunting for rune stones, we did struggle to locate a couple of them, the ones embedded into structures can especially be tricky to find. There were a few ruins along the way as well, so they were an added bonus.

    If possible do take the time to visit this gem of a village, it was great to get out of the hustle and bustle of Stockholm, to visit somewhere smaller but not too far, if using public transport.

    We visited here by public transport from Stockholm. Take the train from Stockholm Central to Märsta Station, (20mins-45mins depending on which train is caught), then bus #570 to Sigtuna Busstation, (25mins). We did Sigtuna and Uppsala in one day, as Uppsala is only 18 mins-45mins by train from Märsta Station. Uppsala is 30-40mins from Stockholm by train. There are frequent times for all these trips.

    This statue can be found from the corner of the Royal Dramatic Theater at Nybroplan.

    Margareta Krook played in dozens of films from the 1950s until her death in 2002 and also acted on stage many times.

    In her opinion, the statues are cold and uninviting. That's why, after her death, the theater made a heated statue to tribute one of Sweden's great actresses.

    Quite a striking statue on the edge of the Old Town. The workmanshipp is intricate and detailed. The statue can be viewed from in front and also from below to give it a different perspective.

    Set on a large plinth in the middle of a square by the opera house, the statue is worth seeing if you are in the area. Surrounded by lots of space really shows the statue off.

    Evert Taube (1890–1976) is Sweden's much-loved balladeer.

    He is so popular that there are at least two statues of him in the city of Stockholm.

    One is located at Riddarholmen right across the water from the City Hall. The other one is located at Järntorget square.

    Gustav III was the Swedish king in the late 18th century who ended the so-called age of liberty, restarted the rule in absolutism and has been assassinated later. However, he had a great contribution to Swedish art and culture.

    This huge bronze statute of Orpheus is located in the Haymarket Square, but actually close to the entrance of the Royal Philharmonic Concert Hall. It is a majestic statute that feature Orpheus and eight subjects, not sure their relationship, but all gathered around a fountain. You can not miss it, just weasel your way past the nasty fruit vendors to the huge Concert Hall columns and you found it.

    A really great place to relax in the middle of Stockholm’s center of culture near the opera house. Lots of cafes and kiosks line the paths to feed your hunger and thirst while enjoying the park.

    Memorial itself is strange - the blobs do not seem to represent anything. Raoul's signature is striking and the added granite ball make it a special place.

    This small bronze sculpture designed by Swedish sculptor Monika Masser is located at the other end of Kungsholmstorg. It was made in 2008. Be careful not to miss it.
