The Old Town, unsurprisingly, is the oldest part of Stockholm. It's certainly the tourist's go-to destination, but that doesn’t detract from its architectural and otherwise urban beauty.

Cute enough to view, it very sad about the graffiti placed on the walls. Makes the old town 'modern'....which is such a shame.

I loved the old streets and it reminded me of Venice. However it is very unique and worth visiting or staying in instead of the more modern hotels on the mainland.

This is the old town. It has souvenirs, restaurants, cafes. Be ready that the prices will be little above the normal standards. This place is popular during summers and Christmas, since they have a Christmas markets. Be aware of pick pocketer. This is really a typical tourist attraction. It gives away how Stockholm looked like a couple of hundred years... More

Favorite part of the city ! Enjoyed a few days exploring and shopping and hitting the cafes! Saturday was a tourist nightmare, so we went back on a Tuesday morning and it was lovely ! We also wandered around in the evening for dinner and then to have a drink afterwards . There are interesting restaurants and cafe and bakeries... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
