Nordiska Kompaniet is the name of two department stores located in Stockholm and Gothenburg, in Sweden.The store in Stockholm receives some twelve million visitors annually, with the figure for the store in Gothenburg being about three million and the total number of staff around 1,200. The trademark and the real estate properties in Gothenburg and Stockholm are owned by Hufvudstaden AB, controlled by L E Lundbergföretagen publ .Swedish Minister of Foreign Affairs Anna Lindh was stabbed in the NK Stockholm store on September 10, 2003. She died the next day after undergoing various unsuccessful operations.HistoryThe company was founded in Stockholm 1902 through the merger of the two companies K.M. Lundberg and Joseph Leja. The men responsible for the merger were Karl Ludvig Lundberg and Josef Sachs (1872–1949), who wanted to establish a department store that would offer the same level of service as the stores in Paris or London.On September 21, 1915 the building designed and built especially for the department store was inaugurated on Hamngatan, over the street from the Kungsträdgården park in Stockholm. Ferdinand Boberg, Sweden's leading Art Nouveau architect, designed the building. He was influenced by American department stores, giving the structure an internal load-bearing steel structure and an external facade of granite. Ivar Kreuger's company Kreuger & Toll was responsible for the actual construction of the building.

  • As in previous occasions, this year we spent a few hours in this wonderful shopping centre, to watch the news and, why not, to make some purchases. His name is Nordiska Kompaniet, abbreviated NK. All in Stockholm knows "NK". In this Center, opened 100 years ago, we can find clothing, bags and other products of the most prestigious brands in the world, but also notes of Nordic companies less known to us with a great value. The staff of the individual stores is very polite, professional and helpful. Many construction contracts, generally tall and blonde, they look like real models. On the top floor there are restaurants with good quality Swedish dishes, especially fish, at great prices. Two pieces of advice to those who have never been to Sweden: during your stay, do not stay without coins from 10 Crowns, because you are required to go into the toilet, including "NK". The Nordiska Kompaniet NK really worth a visit. With its 100-year history in Stockholm this monumental Centre is an absolute myth.

  • If you have previously visited NK in Stockholm, take your time. Enjoy the offerings in the basement the plane's food stores and Bookstore, browse through upward among jewelry, perfume, clothes and furniture. Make a break in the bar or restaurant on level 4 before you make by me the last forces (and the money). If it happens to be advent times are shop Windows extra interesting for both large and small.

  • With the current course of the ordinary traveler can go only to view. There's a lot to see: the Swedes are strong in design and can take away from the taste of what others are doing. Good food court. And just wait for the sales, but with such starting prices.
