This is Stockholm
Modernity meets tranquility. Trend-setting restaurants and vibrant nightclubs next to idyllic archipelago. Welcome to a city where it is easy to breathe – and to feel your pulse.
Gamla Stan is like a living, pedestrian-friendly museum, filled with sights, restaurants, cafés, bars and places to shop. The narrow, winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in different colors, give Gamla Stan its unique character.
Västerlånggatan and Österlånggatan are the district’s main streets, but head off the beaten track to get the true feel of the island. There are several beautiful museums and attractions here, for example the Royal Palace.
Lately Gamla Stan has become a virtual gastro-island when a number of new and excellent restaurants have opened their doors to the public.
