Stockholm for Medieval Experience

Gamla Stan was the living cradle of Stockholm’s birth more than three quarters of a mellennium ago. Theres been a settlement here since at least 1252, though now the locals are more likely to run taverns and waffle shops than fishing boats or pillaging raids. I took a historic tour through the maze of winding medieval alleyways, small squares, ancient churches, and a Royal Palace. It can get very crowded, but you can avoid the bus tour clusters by keeping off the main drags or ducking down side streets and alleyways.
