  • "The plaza more" is in Gamla Stan, the part old of the city. I recommend a stroll through its streets without trouble, stopping at a cafe and try some kardemummabulle.

  • A square where you can visit the Nobel Museum, eating up ahead, view other attractions around, after all, you're in Gamla Stan.

  • Among the most beautiful and romantic locations of Stockholm. If you are in Stockholm in December to forget to visit the christmas market and try traditional Swedish Glögg.

  • 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. 😆
