Maria Where:

Skarpnäck Skatepark


I love Skarpnäck Skatepark because there are loads of fun things to skate and also a place to BBQ if you get hungry.

Maria Where:

Högdalen skatepark


A great spot when the sun is out, it’s free to borrow a skateboard if you and your friends want to try out!




This is where I live and work and my my favourite area in Stockholm; It’s very calm and pretty.

Maria Where:



MaxiGrillen at Medborgarplatsen is the best spot for a quick snack such as a Swedish hotdog. Best thing is, there are great veggie options!

Maria Where:



If you are looking for new garms or some gifts, Götgatan (a shopping street near Slussen Train station on Södermalm) has got a good selection of shops, and of course there’s a Monki store there too!

This is my fav pizza spot! It can be very busy and they don’t take reservations, so be prepared to try out the drinks while you wait! Hökens gata 3, Södermalm.
