Gamla Stan, Stockholm

Planning to visit the old town of Gamla Stan? Check out our information below!


Gamla Stan ‘the Old Town’ is the historic heart of Stockholm and one of the largest and best-preserved medieval city centres in Europe. Everything in Gamla Stan and the adjacent island of Riddarholmen is best compared to an open-air museum that you can stroll through at your leisure. It is a medieval city full of colourful facades and ancient monuments. In summer, Gamla Stan is reminiscent of the centre of a Spanish city in terms of architecture and atmosphere. You will find many tourist shops, but also authentic specialist shops and cosy cafรฉs.

Famous sights found in Stockholm’s old town include the Royal Palace, Storkyrkan cathedral and Stortorget square. You cannot leave the city without having seen this district, as this is definitely one of Stockholm’s highlights.

  1. It is great that you are enjoying “Gamla stan”. I grew up in Sweden and I’ve been there many times. Whenever we travel back to visit relatives in Sweden we visit “Gamla stan” a few times. The Nobel Museum on the far right in the third picture from the top feature some interesting items such as letters from Albert Einstein and a glass of heavy water (the hydrogen in H2O is deuterium or tritium with one or two neutrons) making it a bit heavier than regular water. That’s what you use for thermonuclear/hydrogen bombs.
