Biblioteksgatan är en gata i stadsdelarna Norrmalm och Östermalm i Stockholms innerstad som sträcker sig från Smålandsgatan vid Norrmalmstorg (som en gågata) fram till Birger Jarlsgatan och Stureplan. På norra sidan om Stureplan fortsätter den som bilgata fram till Humlegårdsgatan och Stockholms Kungliga Biblioteket. KB är Sveriges nationalbibliotek. —
Kungliga biblioteket is the National Library of Sweden. Our collections extend more than a thousand years back in time and are growing daily.
We collect, preserve and give access to almost everything that is published in Sweden – from manuscripts, books and newspapers to music, TV programs and pictures. The National Library is a Government Authority under the ambit of the Ministry of Education, headed by the National Librarian, Karin Grönvall. (text: Kb.se)
Humlegården is a green oasis a stone’s throw from nightclub mecca Stureplan, in the middle of the exclusive Östermalm district.
Here you can see businessmen in suits eating brown-bag lunches on the grass when it’s warm and sunny, but also lots of young families and dog owners. In the beginning, the park was a royal garden established by Johan III, who grew fruit, spices, and hops. “Humlan” has been a public park and a popular spot to relax since 1869.
The park includes a large playground area, a skateboard ramp, Surfer’s summer restaurant, and Omnipollos Flora, a summer biergarten. A statue of the flower king Carl Linnaeus stands in the middle of the park, and the National Library of Sweden is right next to Stureplan. (text: Visitstockholm.com)
