My dear mama and I have just come back from the nearby town of Örebro. We went there yesterday to a concert with a Swedish folk music group, (they played a kind of modernized folk music, it was very good!) and since it got quite late we stayed the night with my grandmother who lives there. It isn’t far, but we were in no mood for driving back anyway.
This morning we walked about town looking in shop windows (alas mostly in the windows as the majority of the smaller shops that we looked at were closed today) and also taking pictures of some of the beautiful houses Örebro has to offer. One part of the city, Wadköping, is a very picturesque part, the main street looks like this:
And everywhere you see signs about the danger of snow and ice falling from the roofs. Or like here, where they have put up some planks to stop people from walking too close to where they snow could fall.
In another part of Örebro we saw this old bank building. I don’t believe it is used as a bank anymore. I wish banks still looked like this though, it’s so much prettier than the boring buildings they use today!
Hope you have enjoyed my little tour of some of Örebro’s historic buildings. 😉 I should add though, that unfortunately not all of the city looks like this…
