Very old square. Took the Dinkman back hundreds of years to when he was just a young man. Great little restaurant for reasonable and traditional open face sandwiches. Get that shrimp 🦐. As Gary Coleman once said: “who said shrimp?”

It's lovely, but you'll end up here like every other tourist. Gamla Stan is pretty small, eh? At least got to Chokladkoppen while you're here.

A beautiful cobbled square at the "top"of the Gamla Stan - the Nobel museum on one side. There's a water fountain in the centre, with cool drinkable water - great for hot summer days.

A really nice, small square with many cafes and restaurants. Surrounded by beautiful, old buildings and always crowded - which is making it a little less charming (but it's still a nice place to visit).

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)
