What people say

"Gamla Stan, the old town, is a must-see. You can get lost in the small cobblestone streets, arrive at the Royal Palace, take a ghost tour, and see the beautiful German Church as well as interesting statues. As a photographer, I am all the time amazed by the turns and perspectives that the streets take as well as the architecture. Go to Stortorget and take a look at the colorful houses and to the beautiful Historishen Brunnen, the big fountain in the square."
"This area boasts tons of restaurants, shops, art galleries, and the Royal Palace. My favorite place to visit is the old fashioned candy shop, Old Town Polkagriskokeri! It feels like Christmas all year round. "
