There were not many places I wanted to shop along this pedestrian walk, but it was easy to navigate the city.

The area has a variety of attractions and worth walking about to get to know. There is the pedestrian lane with a wide variety of shops on either side to meet with customer's requirements.

Also there are many pickpockets specially in the summer... More

Terribly place. Overcrowded and watch up for pocket-thiefs. You find them over all. In the streeets, in caferetias and other places. When visiting Stockholm I lost my wallet, even if I mean I was very careful.
