Where Stockholm was founded stands Gamla Stan, the Old Town, which is one of the largest and best-preserved medieval city centres in Europe.
It is full of sights, attractions, restaurants, cafés, bars, and shops. Cobblestone streets, cellar vaults, and frescoes from the Middle ages can be found around town that is almost like a living pedestrian-friendly museum.
Don’t miss out on ancient churches, historic museums, and The Franciscan monastery. The largest of the attractions in the district is the Royal Palace.
