Svartmetall tours LINKÖPING and NORRKÖPING (Sweden) 2012 07 21-26

Linköping and Norrköping 2012 07 21 - 26


Linköping (151,881) and Norrköping (87,247) are two important cities situated in the county of Östergötland. They are both very close to each other and have a frequent commuter train system connecting them.

So, without further ado, here we go!

First, location - as you see, they are to the south west of Stockholm.









My wife and I took the train from Stockholm Centralstation to Linköping, where we were looking after a friends house whilst they were hiking in the north of the country.







Plenty of others had the same idea as us, and the platforms were quite crowded.









The interior of our train. Our train was operated by Veolia Sweden and was on its way to Malmö.






Our first view of Linköping - out to the bus station from the train station.







We had to take the bus out to the business area at Mjärdevi Science Park on the edge of the city.













We then picked up the keys from a friend of a friend and headed back to our friends apartment. We stayed in a very typical Swedish living area - low-rise apartments with plenty of green areas.




















The area our friend lived in was surrounded by forest.







This was the walkway towards the city centre.








We then came across some rather "Scandinavian" modern houses.










And arrived at a city park.










More to come.

The park in the centre of Linköping is really quite attractive.















Old bridge passing through.







Lots of innocuous flowers.







Full of bees!











Time to head towards the city.










Modern developments on the edge of the city centre.








More to come.

Time to head into the city centre - we're greeted with a few older buildings here.











Still, there are always newer buildings mixed with the old.









Like most smaller Swedish cities, Linköping likes bikes. It also seems to like decorating them.









At the market.









Pedestrianised streets in the centre.













Quick shot of an interestingly coloured pigeon.







And an announcement of more to come.

Continuing through the city centre on a very sunny day.









There were some nice buildings in the centre of Linköping.








And another square.







Bikes bikes everywhere.







And eating.









As well as rather monumental buildings.







Little glimpse of the Cathedral.







And some interesting looking buildings.







Heading down a narrow street to our next destination.









Well, this is quite attractive ( St Larskyrkan).







And the associated square is not bad either.











More to come.

Glad you're enjoying it! Yep, during the summer Swedish cities really do come to life. They're a bit quieter during the low season, unfortunately, but summer makes up for it.
