A full-scale outdoor museum in its own right, the Gamla Stan (old town) is a paradise for pedestrians, with streets lined by old Hanseatic houses. Along its three main thoroughfares, Stora Nygatan, Österlånggatan and particularly Västerlånggatan, you'll find attractive boutiques alongside cafés and restaurants, as well as the elegant paved Stortorget (main square), always full of life. Make sure you spend time getting lost in the maze of narrow streets in the eastern section of the old town.
Address:Stora Nygatan, 111 30 Stockholm
