From CNN: This month on ‘My City_My Life’ ABBA pop legend Björn Ulvaeus takes viewers on a journey around Sweden’s capital, Stockholm, including the city’s picturesque Gamla Stan (the Old Town) and the Östermalmshallen Food Hall to the Vasa, Scandinavia’s most visited museum.

As cameras explore the city, Bjorn talks about its vibrant atmosphere and shows viewers the studio where the first ABBA songs were recorded. Along the way, ‘My City_My Life’ discovers the city’s quaint neighbourhoods, its cultural splendour and joins Bjorn on a helicopter ride to the island of Söderarm . As the ABBA star puts it, ‘there’s no Stockholm without its archipelago’.

  • I want to move there.

  • Would love to go to see that place. Not so much in the wintertime though, for all the obvious reasons.

  • Stockholm impresses me as a spectacular, historic and vibrant city; clean, safe and friendly; with dynamic cultural attractions from all time periods. I think northern Europe has been overlooked as a travel destination for too long, and unreasonably so, by Canadians, Australians, and Americans wishing to visit Europe.

    I have also been extremely impressed by photos of Norway on Google Earth. A pity, though, that the Abba Museum will not be built in Stockholm.
