Marten Trotzigs Grand, is the narrowest alley in Stockholm (90 cm wide), Fisketorget, the square of the fishermen, Karl Johans Torg square, King Charles square, Fru Gunillas Gränd, one of the few streets that the city hall was not able to open to the public, the Swedish Academy, the church of the Germans and the Finns, what do these places have in common? Simple, they are all located in Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s Old Town.
Gamla Stan, formerly known as Staden Mellan Broarna (the city between the bridge) is one of the historical centers of medieval best preserved in Europe and then the main center of attraction for tourists visiting the Swedish capital, because, over the Swedish Academy and the Nobel Museum, here is situated the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of Stockholm.
But apart from the Reggie, churches, museums and palaces, the things that attract tourists are the squares, streets and alleys that intersect without any logic apparent, giving Gamla Stan the special charm of a journey through time. What about a walk to the Nobel Museum and from there down to the channels, with the sun going down over the northern at ten o’clock at night (as most of the travel bloggers write in their blogs).
Many tourists also means many stores for shopping, although in Gamla Stan is hard to find something distinctive to take away (as with all the historical centers of major cities) and the city has many bars and restaurants, so it is easy, almost normal to spend the whole day here.If you are wondering for a place to sleep then budget Travel Specialist Hostelbookers provide affordable and stylish hotels in Stockholm and 2,500 destinations worldwide. There are metro stops to Gamla Stan taking the red and green line of the subway in Stockholm.
