Guide to Stockholm's Old Town

Stockholm Visitors Board has published a guide to Stockholm's medeival Old Town, Gamla stan.

Gamla Stan is like a living, pedestrian-friendly museum, filled with sights, restaurants, cafés, bars and places to shop. The narrow, winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in different colors, give Gamla Stan its unique character.

Västerlånggatan and Österlånggatan are the district’s main streets, but head off the beaten track to get the true feel of the island. There are several beautiful museums and attractions here, for example the Royal Palace.

Lately Gamla Stan has become a virtual gastro-island when a number of new and excellent restaurants have opened their doors to the public.
