Skrapan is an interesting place because it suits whatever interest I may have that day. First of all, it’s a cool building because it’s the tallest building in the Stockholm city limits. Stockholm is a big city that lacks skyscrapers, so Skrapan is the closest one can get to one.
Skrapan has restaurants, shops, a bar and even residential living for both students and regular residents. One of the cool shops in Skrapan is “American Godis”. Here I can find the popular American foods and snacks that aren’t in the typical Swedish grocery store. Naturally, the prices are much more expensive than in the US. There is an Italian restaurant, an Asian blend restaurant, a yoghurt shop, a coffee shop and much more.
The highlight of Skrapan is the restaurant called Himlen (Heaven in Swedish). There is a beautiful view of Stockholm from Himlen, but I can’t go there regularly due to the high prices. I mark Himlen as a “special occasion” restaurant. The food, drinks and view make the prices understandable.
Skrapan sits pretty close to the city center. With it’s size, it’s hard to miss. Once inside, I’m glad I found it.
