A Bit of Sweden – The 5 Best Bits of Nynäshamn

While in Stockholm a few weeks ago for TBEX, one of the most important travel blogger conferences of the year, a few of us chose to head down to Nynäshamn with the sole purpose of eating and drinking! Only about an hour from the capital, it would have been a pity not to make the trek.
