Looking to take your partner on a romantic weekend to Stockholm? The fastest and most environmentally friendly way to travel from Arlanda airport to central Stockholm is by the Arlanda Express train. The journey to the city center takes 20 minutes. All Saturdays and Sundays, two adults travel together for only SEK 280.

But what if you are single? No problem! Take a chance and share the ticket with a new acquaintance. You have the opportunity to flirt at the ticket machines, you never know what it might lead to. At least, you surely will get a nice chat with someone who is also on its way to Stockholm, and maybe you can also get tips on sights and events in the city?

If you are too shy to flirt with strangers at the ticket machines there’s another solution for you. The staff at the Arlanda Express ticket offices will be happy to match you with another single traveler whenever they get the chance.

The Arlanda Express trains are comfortable and modern – and, who knows, when you arrive at the end of the journey, you might share more than just one ticket. You might even have met your true love or a friend for life. So if you participated in the contest “Win a date with Stockholm” without winning – don´t worry, you still have a chance to a date.
Take a chance on Stockholm!

Stockholm is a great place for shopping, and a perfect place to discover that Swedish fashion and design is so much more than skinny jeans and strangely named bookshelves from Ikea.

At Stureplan, in the very heart of Stockholm, you’ll find Sturegallerian – an artful diversity of selected shopping, contemporary dining and modern lifestyle. Centrally located, it is a haven for all fashionistas, bookworms, gourmets, audiophiles, café hounds, interior design enthusiasts and other followers of quality. But it is also a natural meeting place, melting pot and a hub for city living both day and night with pubs, nightclubs, leisure and recreation.

Chi Peng - Sprinting Forward

Featuring internationally renowned Chinese artists such as Ma Liuming, Gao Brothers, Chi Peng, and Zhang Yuan, the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities will be opening an exhibition this autumn on the theme of taboo love: Secret Love. This is the first ever major exhibition of contemporary art on this subject. The exhibition includes around 100 works by more than twenty Chinese artists, who are united in their desire to express subjects – such as identity, norms and sexuality – that are sensitive in China.

Chinese society is experiencing rapid changes, resulting in shifting views on sexuality and identity. This change is particularly evident when it comes to LGBTQ people. Homosexuality was decriminalised in 1997 and since 2000 has no longer been regarded as a mental illness, but many taboos remain. The internet and a more open society have brought greater awareness of individual rights. Discover modern China, where art and visual culture contribute towards increased consciousness and dialogue in the fight against prejudices. With this exhibition, the museum aims to show the force behind the current changes within Chinese society, and what this means to the individual. Secret Love is a thrilling encounter with Chinese contemporary art, with an unprecedented scale and scope in terms of this theme.

PARTICIPATING ARTISTS: CHENG JUANZI, CHI PENG, CUI ZI, FAN POPO, GAO BROTHERS, GAO YUAN, DOLLAR HAN, JIANG QIGU, LI GUANGXIN, LI YONGFEI, LI XIAOFENG, LIN ZHIPENG, LIN JINFU, MA LIUMING, MU XI, QIU JIONGJIONG, REN HANG, SONG JIANING, SHI TOU, WANG ZI, WEI JIANGANG, XIYADIE, XIE QI, YANG GUOWEI, ZHANG YUAN, ZHENG BO.
