Shopping time in Gothenburg

Some distance away, the cool and hot boutiques await you, made in Sweden style. There is a big pedestrian street. Home furnishing store called Artilleriet is here. PAP is a local accessory brand at the courtyard in Grandpa.

Find denim and more denim at the Blue Jeans Company and you will come across denim necklaces made by hand.

Art attack

The Avenue in English, but in Swedish, it’s called Avenyn. It is Gothenburg’s art museum and busy all the time. The museum has a lot of Nordic art in it and has a Hasselblad Center. It has photographic images.

Fika is a famous and well known tradition of having a coffee and bun called as bulle. Stop at the Viktors Kaffe. Now, head to the Sweden’s design museum called Rohsska Museet, which is nearby. It has midcentury furniture and futurists clothes from a notable Swedish fashion designer Helena Horstedt.

Time for tequila and tacos

How would a Mexican bordello circa in 1918 looked like? Go to the Puta Madre, which is a terrific restaurant with a superb atmosphere. It has fringed lampshades, red drapes and flickering chandeliers.

Take the scene in and have a pineapple margarita and also tequila. There are at least hundred odd tequilas in here. Order a house made tortilla stuffed with potatoes, spicy chorizo, lime, jicama, mackerel and red onion salsa.

Have a cake and there are at least twelve on shelf. Dinner for two costs 800 kronor.

Bath in beer

The beer geeks will like the sign which say, don’t ask for blask, which means cheap beer. The sign hangs at 3 Sma Rum. It is a pub in a basement and has an assortment of Belgian and other beers. Don’t expect corona and carsberg. The ceiling is low and lighting is sparse. Enjoy the pint.

The high five IPA has oriental rugs, which are on the wall and gives the three rooms bar an appearance. Olrepubliken is another pub with Swedish craft brews.

Round up the cafes

Commence your day with the Bar Centro, which is a small coffee shop. It serves high standardized espresso coffee and the customers simply love it to hell. The cobblestone street of Haga neighborhood is lined with supreme and classy Swedish cafes. Café Husaren is one of them and sells large cinnamon buns.

Get sea sick

Escape the calm city and head to the calm sea of Gothenburg. The island of Branno is car free and tranquility prevails. There are colorful cottages and secluded bath rocks. There are sea vistas and hiking paths. Take a tram to reach here. Then, ferries depart regularly at given schedules.
