Dominated by the king's castle, Stockholm Old Town brings together the historical and tourist centers of the city. Founded in the 13th century, this quarter makes up the original settlement of Stockholm and is home to notable architecture, mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries. Stroll down this medieval neighborhood's cobbled streets that feature colorful building facades, as well as north German-style squares. You can tour the royal castle on the north side of the district, which was built in 1754 by architect Nicodemus Tessin. Or take time to stop in to the souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars that are plentiful in the area. Put Stockholm Old Town into our Stockholm trip site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Stockholm.

Stockholm Old Town Reviews
Idealny punkt orientacyjny na mapie Sztokholmu, przepiękne uliczki, sklepy z pamiątkami i restauracje. Idealne na spacer, choć w sezonie dość zatłoczone. more »The perfect landmark on the map of Stockholm, beautiful streets, souvenir shops and restaurants. Perfect for a stroll, although in the season quite crowded.
Det finns många små serveringar, fik o restauranger. Men det är lite väl turistigt längs ”huvudleden” för min smak. Har man aldrig varit här är det definitivt värt ett besök. more »There are many small cafés, cafés and restaurants. But it's a bit well touristy along the "main trail" for my tastes. If you have never been here, it is definitely worth a visit.
