Noone can deny that they have been spoilt by the incredible weather we have been recently having. Blue skies, soaring temperatures and warm waters have made it the perfect weekend to get down to any lakeside or seaside location and lap up the rays that are bouncing of the water. With that in mind, we have combined some of the best outdoor things for the sunny days and a unique event or two for you to get along to this weekend.


 

FOOD & DRINK
MÄLARPAVILJONGEN | NORR MÄLARSTRAND

If you are looking for an oasis nestled on a pier by the edge of the water and in need of a bite to eat, then Mälarpaviljongen is the ideal location for you this weekend. Well known for its stunning sights as you tuck into extravagantly made dishes, or if you just want to pop in for a light bite to eat, a refreshing drink and a break from the warm weather, then this is definitely the place for you. Star studded reviews online and suitable for couples, friends or even time with the family, there really is no discernable reason why this little slice of heaven shouldn’t be on your list of places to go when the sun is shining and there isn’t a cloud in the sky.

SIGHTSEEING
CITY BIKES | STOCKHOLM CITY

With the city growing in increasing beauty with the consistent sunshine and warming temperatures, take the chance to drink in Stockholm at its finest. The opportunity to cycle alongside the picturesque lakes, through the tranquil parks or from cafe to cafe for a fika or two are just two wheels away, so buy a three-day pass or a seasonal card and ride to your hearts content throughout this beautiful city.

MUSIC PARTY
EUROVISION THE PARTY | GLOBE ARENA

Whilst Europe’s biggest show of the year might have been sold out the second tickets went online, the biggest party in the continent is still very much available. Get the chance to join like-minded fans and watch the whole drama unfold on the big 300 metre big screen. Backstage interviews, exclusive chats and live performances from Carola, Loreen and many more are all on show for adorning fans and, if that is not enough, then go the extra mile and buy a ticket to the after party and make sure the event goes off with a bang.

ACTIVITY
OPEN AIR BATH HOUSE | SALTSJÖBADEN
15/5

With the sensational weather we have been having, nothing seems better than lounging in the open air baths by the sea. Not only are their brilliantly kept baths available for adults and children to paddle and play in, but sandwiched between the open air spas is a scenic beach to relax on or dive into the crystal open waters. Saltsjöbadens Friluftsbad not only offers beautiful surroundings and fantastic facilities, but a restaurant boasting delicious dishes should be enough to entice you down this weekend. Hurry though, this Sunday is opening day and you can be sure this place will be packed to the rafters right from opening time.

EXTRA GEM OF THE WEEK
MOVIE
X-MEN APOCALYPSE
18/5

Bryan Singer has conjured up another spellbinding performance in the latest blockbuster and ninth film in the X-Men series. Once again containing a star-studded cast, including the ever-present Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence, Charles Xavier and his band of super mutants might fight against their biggest adversary to date. As the world’s greatest mutant “Apocalypse” and his four horsemen look to destroy humanity for their sins on the world, Xavier and his young team must fight the historical foes or all humanity will be lost for good. Incredible cinematography, death defying stunts and a fight to save the world make it a movie worth watching on its grand opening in Stockholm on Wednesday.
