Stockholm Old Town
Old Town, the original city centre of Stockholm
Old Town (Gamla Stan) in Stockholm is by many considered as the true city centre of Stockholm and dates from the 13th century but most buildings are from the 1700s and 1800s.
Stortorget is the main square and all the big attractions lead off it, including the Royal Palace (Kungliga Slottet) and The Royal Chapel (Storkyrkan).
Around 3,000 people live in the Old Town and it is packed with cafés, restaurants, tourist shops, studios, galleries and museums.
