Sweden // The southeast //


At the southernmost tip of Drottninggatan, Norrköping’s Konstmuseum holds some of the country’s best-known modernist works. Founded by a local snuff manufacturer at the turn of the twentieth century, the galleries offer a fine, well-balanced progression from seventeenth-century Baroque through to twentieth-century work. As you head back north from the art museum, the bunker-like concrete building to the right at Södra Promenaden 105 is the town library; more user-friendly than most, it has a range of newspapers from all over the world.
