This is the main square in Gamla Stan. Its very pleasant, with loads of restaurant around the outside. There is also the Nobel Museum and a water feature, where you can drink the water. Its very busy and crowded.

This is a really pretty square with places to sit and people watch. The fountain in the centre is a pretty attraction and there are a number of places to grab a bite or a drink. Lovely little spot!

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
