An afternoon in Sweden
So, where’d I leave off? Right. Fika! After enjoying coffee and cinnamon buns, Nadja and I decided we were sufficiently warm, caffeinated, and sugared up to do some more outdoor wanderings.
A 14th century church and a McDonalds in the same frame. Always a mind trip.
This is one of the train stations that can take you back to Copenhagen. Ironically, circular and yet named “Triangeln.” But then Nadja pointed out that it’s made up of triangles, so I guess it fits.
This looks like a bank or something, but it’s actually the end of a big shopping mall that spans the length of the whole square. (More on our shopping adventures later.)
Less than 200m from St. Peter’s church is the Malmö Konsthall, a free admission art museum.
Can we stop for a second and admire these amazing brochures that lined the walls off the museum entrance?
I MEAN. How badass are these UKELELE PLAYERS!?
The inside was cute and cozy.
The actual art exhibits were…interesting.
TL;DR but basically the above exhibit is just the leftovers from a previous exhibit. The lazy man’s art? Or ~ oh, ah, so deep ~ because it’s making you think about what “qualifies” as art. OR! The cynical view might say it’s all they could afford for a free art exhibit.
Either way, it was heated so we were happy.
The museum also had a book shop, and everyone knows art museums have the BEST bookshops.
Only catch was that all these books were in Swedish. Obviously.
After wrapping up at the museum, we decided to do some shopping — but I’ll save that for another post.
Suffice to say, our time in Malmö was really lovely. I definitely plan on coming back over to Sweden; it’s just way too easy not to.
As it got dark and the city emptied out, we took the train back across the Oresund.
Back to Copenhagen. Back to my home away from home.
