Gamla stan is my favourite part of the city, where Stockholm was founded in 1252. The cobblestoned narrow streets are full of restaurants, cafés, bars, and places to shop. The buildings in so many different shades of gold, give Gamla Stan its unique character. Even now cellar vaults and frescoes from the Middle Ages can be found behind the visible facades. There are several beautiful churches and museums in Gamla Stan, including Sweden’s national cathedral Stockholm Cathedral and the Nobel Museum. The largest of the attractions in the district is the Royal Palace, one of the largest palaces in the world with over 600 rooms.
Västerlånggatan and Österlånggatan are main streets. . In the middle of Gamla Stan is Stortorget, the oldest square, from which runs Köpmangatan, the oldest street in Stockholm. I like to go there for food, deserts and shopping.. Mårten Trotzigs gränd (Mårten Trotzigs alley), the narrowest ally is only 90 centimeters wide at its narrowest point.
