I am proud and happy to have been offered to represent my beautiful hometown Stockholm at Elizabeth Street ”Where Stylish Moms Meet”. I will guide you to my favorite sightseeing spots, restaurants, hotel – everything presented with my “childfriendly glasses” on if you are a mom visiting Stockholm together with children.
Welcome to my hometown.
Favourite spots in Stockholm
Together with inspiring, successful, beautiful Swedish women in Stockholm, all moms with young children, we will guide visitors from all over the world to our favorite spots in the capital of Sweden. This is me and my three lovely kids, Isabella, Emilia and Adam. You will find my presentation at Elizabeth Street Stockholm Moms HERE!
What do I love about my city?
– Well, there is a mix of several things. Stockholm is beautiful in all four seasons. December, with the genuine Christmas market in Old town that takes you several hundred years back in time with the narrow alleys and beautiful buildings surrounding. When spring arrives, in late March to April, with the cherry trees blossom in pink in ”Kungsträdgården” and open-door cafés and restaurants are filled with sun thirsty people with a soft ice cream in the hand.

When summer arrives I love to stroll along the water in the green area of “Djurgården”, or go out in a boat in the beautiful archipelago. In the autumn I enjoy to see some of all the interesting museums, shows or theatres that are offered. But not to forget, “a nice autumn day” might also be the most beautiful season to be outdoors, when the air is crispy and clear and the leaves on the trees are like a spectra of colours in red and yellow.

Welcome to Sweden
Recently in Sweden, there has been shown on TV a successful comedian program called “Welcome to Sweden”. The program is directed by the American Greg Pohler, brother of the famous American comedian Amy Pohler. You can see it on BBC in july! I think it will give you a pretty good look into Sweden and Swedish people (of course, like with any media production, always with a bit exaggeration). I think it´s really funny and can´t wait for the second season to take part.
Welcome to Sweden.
One thing that is mentioned in “Welcome to Sweden”, is the parenting leave. And that´s also a thing that I really appreciate with Stockholm and Sweden. Something I actually heard foreign visitors talk about, is that you often see fathers with a child in a stroller. Did you know that in Sweden the fathers have 2 months of exclusive parental leave? And they can choose to stay at home even longer, still being compensated for the majority.
Much more at “Rosita reser”
I have much more tips for your visit in Stockholm, than is showed on Elizabeth Street Stockholm Moms. You will find it here on my website Rosita reser (“Rosita is travelling”), where I will publish short texts in English. For example, Fjäderholmarna, Skansen, Gröna Lund, Gamla Stan/Old Town of Stockholm, and more will come with tips for restaurants, shops for children clothes and more. For all the other texts, in Swedish, you can use the Google Translate. If you are using a smartphone you will find Google Translate at the bottom.
