People know about this island, but it is overshadowed by adjacent Gamla Stan. Stockholm plans on making it more of a tourist magnet. For now, you have to rely on some good tourist guides and investigative work. Riddarholmskyrkan is a pretty well-known attraction, and the...More

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.
