Owner description: The Old Town, unsurprisingly, is the oldest part of Stockholm. It's certainly the tourist's go-to destination, but that doesn’t detract from its architectural and otherwise urban beauty.

“Is this place real?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Gamla Stan is so pretty with its little windy streets and bursts of hot colour. It was covered in snow so the contrast was beautiful. I couldn't help feeling like I was in a movie set though, like the place wasn't real. The vast amount of tourist shops I think spoils it but at least there's plenty of souvenir choice...

“Nice Old Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Old Town in Stockholm is much like others in Europe, it's pretty and nice and worth the visit. We were there in winter so it may be much busier with more going on. Little bits to see, I recommend that you walk around and explore the different streets and places to eat.

“Beautiful in the snow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

We visited in December and there was snow on the ground. It was beautiful, the Christmas market small but very festive and fun.
Lots of lovely shops and restaurants to browse and enjoy.

“Gamla Stan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Something for everyone - a must if visiting Stockholm. Nobel museum is a little bit hit and miss depending on the temp exhibition on offer.

“Our favourite part of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Gamal Stan is the original Stockholm. Many churches, galleries, small shops, cafees and restaurants. Very charming. Take the small, narrow streets to get away from the noises and crowd. It is very croweded in the high season.
