Gamla Stan is a place where Stockholm was born in the 13th century. Its narrow cobbled streets, purple-colored little houses and a stunning city view from the embankment are among the main themes on Swedish postcards. Come and discover the narrowest Mårten Trotzigs Gränd alley, melt when seeing the tiniest monument “the Iron Boy”, watch the guard mount at 12:15 by the Royal Palace and promise yourself to attend the hearings at the Parliament someday.
The place makes simple souvenirs into super useful and timely things. You’re gonna want to buy a magnet, a smaller copy of Carlson, or a canvas bag with an image of Pippi Longstocking. It all looks really pretty, especially to those who haven’t seen Unibaken or the designer’s store yet.
