Overview

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.

Im a really big fan of places like that. The old town is really nice, with very pretty architecture. There are also many nice restaurants and places to grab a drink. If you are in Stockholm it’s a must.

A pity that this is overrun with tourist shops. Thought it much more interesting 40 years ago. Our hotel recommended no restaurants here. We had high expectations. A pity.

Try and make it early here, get a chair at a cafe outside and just enjoy the people walking by! Hot chocolate is a must in the area too!

A compact area which you can easily "do" in an hour. Especially lovely in the sunshine, with lots of places to eat/drink.

Nice town with too much to see. It’s impossible to do in just three days. Walking is ok, but there is also the metro, trains, buses , boats and an old tram to get you around.

to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
