    The charming Old Town of Stockholm ... a fascinating atmosphere and a pretty mix of medieval, renaissance and baroque houses.

    There is a open square in the middle of the Gamla Stan area that is great for resting and watching the people go by.

    Old Town's alleys and lanes will make you feel right in the middle ages. Relax and sit at one of its many street cafes or whop for local crafts.

    This is old town (gamla = old). It is really great, with all this little streets. But everything is so colorfull, and nice and clean. If you go to Stockholm this is really a must to see.

    The small walkways in Gamla Stan are packed on a Sunday afternoon.. This picture was taken on Saturday, when it was easier to take pictures like these...

    Gamla Stan is a great place to walk even if you only have an hour or two, it's a great place to buy souvenoirs or to sit down and relax and converse over a cup of coffee.

    The Old Town (Gamla Stan) is a great area to explore, lots of small, winding streets that are mostly trafic free.

    Stortorget

    by PookieRabbit Updated Aug 31, 2003

    This square is the place to be seen sipping a coffee at one of the cafes around its edges. The only problem is trying to get a seat! On a day like this however your chances increase dramatically!
