Stockholm’s Old Town Gamla Stan

Gamla Stan

Stockholm’s Old Town Gamla Stan must be the most popular area to visit. It is here in  1252  the year Stockholm was found. It is an area full of cafes , restaurants and quaint  shops. Cobble  and  the narrowest streets  gives it the most distinctive  characteristic .

Everywhere I walked & explored a new narrow street would appear uniquely colourful , cuter than the one I just passed. It is completely car free area so it makes it comfortable to walk around.

Although the area is full of interesting museums and churches it is also home to the Royal Palace, built in the 17th -18th century when Sweden was a very powerful nation.

Stortorget

Within the Old Town you find  Stortorget , a popular square where locals relax with  an afternoon coffee and famous Fika and where tourists admire the old patrician buildings. Must admit it really is such an adorable square.

Of course no trip to Stockholm is complete is this area is missed. It is walking distance from the central station so it’s easy to walk to.  It is worthwhile to get the full history on the square by purchasing a Stockholm pass and take a walking tour. Here is where you can purchase the pass

I hope you will enjoy Stockholm, the cool city , as much as I did.

  1. Welcome. Just wanted to share with you the best of Europes festivals over the past few months. I have visited most of these in the past year and I can assure you that they are brilliant. Find time to enjoy life and attend some of these this year. Looking forward to some more interesting posts on the Marina de Bolnuevo blog (www.marinedebolnuevo.co.uk). Have a great day.
