Norrköping -a city of contrasts

I have been very busy lately… With my vacation:) I have had zero time in front of my computer, not too much time with my camera and a lot of time IRL. Fantastic and enjoyable, I think it is important to take care of the time of in ways that make us reload. It will soon be autumn and a lot of time for “cosy” evenings inside…

In Sweden we have had a lovely weather for the last weeks, hot, sunny, my favorite kind of weather!

Today there was some rain coming up and I went for some sight-seeing in a nearby town, called Norrköping. Norrköping is a town with an industrial history which means there is a lot of old abandoned industrial buildings. Some are used for other purposes like art, museums, coffee places and so on. You can find a lot of great sights. Read more about Norrköping on Wikipedia.

I will guide you through some places with photos I took today.
