Is on the "must do and see" lists for a Stockholm visit. Walked from our hotel (Nybroplan) around the Royal Palace and thru into Gamla Stan, via one of the many people tunnels. Found an excellent restaurant with "Swedish meatballs" for lunch, then excellent gift n' craft shops near a square (Estniska Skolan), then walked the small cute streets and then the main street back into Stromgatan (a main shopping area).

it is a nice area (gamla stan) which is worth a visit. There are several inner courtyards that can be visited as there is a on open access. This give a picturesque view on how Sweden looked like in more places.

This is a wonderful old town of wooden buildings. It is a real and active town. It struck me as a wonderfully close community as I watched the promenade to the studentbal and graduation celebrations.

You can take Metro or walk from Stockholm City island to Gamla Stan Island over a connecting bridge. This little island has cobblestone streets. The best selection of restaurants, cafe and Bars are on this island. This is the mail tourist attraction when in Stockholm, the city made up of islands. One can walk for hours and get lost in time. I highly recommend a visit to Gamla Stan when in Stockholm.

The old part consists of a large number of wooden two stories houses from the 19C in good shape. They have not been ravaged by fire (as opposed to the part on the other side of the church). It is delightful to explore the area not least because of local business such as the café-bakeries (konditori in Swedish) which are well supplied.
Another reason for our visit here is that my great grandfather lived in one of the houses.

You find a lot of old log buildings from the 16-hundreds and other more recent wooden buildings where there are restaurants, hotels and shops today

They name themselves as unique wood city and definately this is such. Nice, tiny and plenty of shops located in the center of Eksjö.

The old town is very small yet very impressive in their conservation. A brochure with the explanation of many buildings helped out a lot. Further ample opportunity for shopping.

Fine old wooden houses. Went back to this city where I worked at the hospital some 30 years ago. I even sold tickets in the little old Cinema in the evenings. So I knew this pitoresque old place - it is absolutely worth a visit
