Malmo hosts delightful combination of interesting architecture, parks, and a charming town.

A knotted gun statue we saw in a few locations throughout Europe

I think this was town hall

The Turning Torso, a famous expensive-looking condo, and by far the tallest building in Malmo.

The Turning Torso is in the midst of a whole district with modernist, unique architecture

There weren't as many windmills in Scandinavia (or Holland) as I expected. Still, here's one.

Sculpture out of a story I don't know (I initially thought Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, but I don't think that's it)

In town a lot of the buildings are 500 years old

摩尔魔(Malmo) - 现代建筑之都

sunny 20 °C

哪里是现代建筑之都? 不是巴黎,也不是纽约,也是瑞典小城Malmo (有观众向我指出它是瑞典的第3大城市,积极纠正错误).

如果我买房,我就要有这么多窗子的房子。小区的设计不仅突出在每座小楼独树一帜的风格,更在于所有细节的人性化和环保化。

Stockholm

sunny 17 °C
View Around the world ın 8 months on chrisvasil's travel map.

My first sight in Stockholm was the new male model for H&M europe, a homeless-looking dude. I thought: this is awesome! that guy is how they sell clothes in Scandinavia! Within the next few weeks I found out he's the model throught Europe, and presumably the world. Less exciting.

One of the better clocktowers of all time
20090918_193.jpg

I like how they distinguish the genders. Indeed, the dresses used to denote Ladies in rest of world is rather dated.
20090918_208.jpg

We went to the currency museum, and saw wonderful things:
a Zimbabwean trillion dollar bill note. That's 15 zeros.
20090918_209.jpg

Also a pre-WWII trillion Deutschemark note
20090918_222.jpg

Biggest coin ever - back before the gold standard, when currency was all silver and gold coins, Sweden had a precious metal shortage. So they made coins out of less-precious metals, like copper. This coin was worth the same as 5 silver coins, less than one gold coin, and weighed about 10 kilos. They used to carry them on toboggans (there are some upsides to the climate in the north)

斯德哥尔摩(Stockholm) -宜家家私的发源地,肉丸和满大街的美女帅哥

sunny 20 °C

从哥本哈根走入Stockholm,感觉仿佛从20世纪的80年代走入21世纪。街道,公共设施,城市的设计和建筑,仿佛都被升级了。走在马路上,呼吸着新鲜的空气,看着满街的高挑金发的美女帅哥也是一种享受。
我最最爱的雕塑- 沿街乞讨的狐狸。虽然比不了聊斋里的狐仙的妖艳,但是它绝不会输于神韵。

还是典型的欧洲建筑。大气却又不忽略细节。

既然到了瑞典,就不得不去宜家的总店参拜。说我没品也好,吝啬也好(宜家的确是北美市场上最便宜的家私),我就是一个宜家教徒。不在于它的流行,而在于它简洁实用的设计。简单利落,表现直接,在某些方面,它和我的性格是有很多交集的。
20090918_279.jpg
因为有了宜家,所以才让瑞典的肉丸如此的出名。
20090918_282.jpg
在之后的几天内,肉丸陪伴我们度过了在瑞典的每餐每顿。

从大楼的楼顶往外望。如果我是政府雇员,在办公室能见到这么美的景色,干脆搬张折叠床到办公室睡觉算了。

我喜欢Stockholm,喜欢它的现代,喜欢它的内敛和默默无闻,喜欢它的安静,还有它不经修饰的大气美。
