Gamla Stan is Swedish for old town. Our Hostel named Best Hostel was seated in Gamla Stan, we had a wonderful view from our window over the sea (image above). We saw the ships and cruisers coming and going.
Stockholm is such a lovely city, the original buildings are well-preserved, the historical city centre has not been damaged in a war as here in Berlin. So I really enjoyed these old and original buildings, their structure and their colors.
We looked for the narrow and silent streets in Gamla Stan, for places without tourists. We found some but not many.
These are some places I recommend in Gamla Stan:
• Have a hot choclate and a Swedish cinnamon bun at Chokladkoppen.
• Visit Stadsmission for vintage finds.
• Also worth a visit: the Sweden Bookshop, which offers a huge range of translated swedish literature and books about Sweden.
More to come in the next days!
