Gamla Stan (Old Town)

Have fun wandering down its narrow, winding, cobblestone streets lined with museums, shops, galleries, and cafes. Gamla Stan is also home to:

Royal Palace

Tour richly furnished royal apartments. See the changing of the guard.

City Hall

Visit the hall where Nobel Prizes are awarded. Climb City Hall's tower for a bird's eye view of Stockholm.


Vasa Museum

The 70-meter (230-foot) long Vasa warship was adorned with elaborately carved sculptures, making it the pride of the sea. It was launched in 1628 with great fanfare. Within minutes, it sank and lay forgotten. In the 20th century, the Vasa was discovered, raised, restored, and placed in a custom exhibition building that allows you to see multi-level interiors.

Other museums

Stockholm has dozens of other quality museums spanning a variety of focuses. They include:

Skansen Open-Air Museum
