Spend your holiday in a charming Swedish veteran bus with roof top garden

Posted by Assia Awad

You find this amazing veteran bus from 1976 surrounded by the forest in a quiet part of the Swedish capital, Stockholm. The owners Jon and Stina had great fun renovating and transforming the old bus into a beautiful and comfortable living space. It’s situated by a vibrant vegetarian community “Vita Hästen” (White Horse) which was the inspiration for Lukas Moodysson movie, “Together.” Within walking distance is the lake Kyrksjön and Stockholms oldest building, Bromma church.

It is possible to spend your vacation in the bus, as Jon and Stina rent it out on airbnb.com. The bathroom and kitchen is located in a house just outside the bus and shared with the rest of the community. 


Guests staying in the bus say it’s like living in a fairy tale. 


Spacious roof top with grill, herbs, lemon tree and sofa. Jon and Stina built the sofa themselves. It’s very comfortable, so you can easily sleep in it

The two comfortable sofas in the driver section are made from the original seats.
