Stockholm Old Town, Stockholm

4.6
#1 of 478 in Parks in Sweden
Dominated by the king's castle, Stockholm Old Town brings together the historical and tourist centers of the city. Founded in the 13th century, this quarter makes up the original settlement of Stockholm and is home to notable architecture, mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries. Stroll down this medieval neighborhood's cobbled streets that feature colorful building facades, as well as north German-style squares. You can tour the royal castle on the north side of the district, which was built in 1754 by architect Nicodemus Tessin. Or take time to stop in to the souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars that are plentiful in the area. Put Stockholm Old Town into our Stockholm trip site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Stockholm.

  • I travel a lot around Europe and has already began to think that, in principle, all cities are more or less similar to each other. And madly wanted to see something else. In Sweden, I finally got the other impressions:-) Other architecture, people, looking differently (straight, as in the film about Nils:-)) downtown (little square) is small, but very picturesque. Immediately the Royal residence (the changing of the guard about anything, in my opinion), immediately nobelmuseum etc Famous coffee house on little big square is very small, prices are high, but coffee is very tasty. Do not understand how to hit on a review site, strolling somewhere away from the old town. View there was just delightful. In General, go, wander, without fear of getting lost-the only way you get in the spirit of the city and the country.
