Gamla Stan - The Old Town, Stockholm
The charming Old Town of Stockholm ... a fascinating atmosphere and a pretty mix of medieval, renaissance and baroque houses.
During summer use small ship from Gamla Stan or Opera metro station and go to one of small islands with nice fish-restaurants.
The island of Riddarholmen, to the west of Staden, faces Lake Malaren. It contains the Riddarholms Kyrkan, a church and burial place of Swedish royalty.
The handsome Swedish Parliament (Riksdag) building is located on the island of Helgeandsholmen, just north of the Royal Palace. In front of it is a small park.
