  • The perfect landmark on the map of Stockholm, beautiful streets, souvenir shops and restaurants. Perfect for a stroll, although in the season quite crowded.

  • 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.
