  • With the snow it's simply amazing. The Christmas tree in the middle of the square gives the whole square a magic touch. 
  • Stortorget-large area, actually, very little! Of course, you cannot compare it with beautiful squares of Brussels or Munich ... But it is very cosy and homely, not capital! This probably will be remembered!

  • Nice large cobbled square very close to the Royal Palace popular with tourists . Plenty of overpriced tourist shops and eateries

  • A historical and popular spot for tourists in the heart of Gamlastan. Can see a lot of the old city and architecture. The streets are paved with cobblestones and there are a lot of souvenir shops. If you see something you like, and have some time, prices can vary the further out you get from the centre.
  • Best part of the old town. It has a laid-back atmosphere and takes you back hundreds of years.
  • One of the best and most colorful square in Europe. The atmosphere is very suggestive.
  • Nothing special. Historically and nice old town part
  • Wonderful square with the Nobel museum on one side. Worth a visit if you're visiting Stockhom. 😆
