Stockholm looks out to the Baltic Sea. Boasting a 700 year-old history, the city is home to grand public buildings, palaces and has a rich cultural history. Stockholm is world famous for being stunningly picturesque and sitting on 14 islands. It is surrounded by water and presents parkland, forest and beautiful views. Discover the renowned Royal Palace, gothic churches, Swedish design-ware shops and excellent cafés and restaurants. We will stop at carefully chosen spots including the City Hall, the Wasa museum and Skansen.

All of Gamla Stan and the adjacent island of Riddarholmen are like a living pedestrian-friendly museum full of sights, attractions, restaurants, cafés, bars and places to shop. Gamla Stan is also popular among aficionados of handicrafts, curios and souvenirs. The narrow winding cobblestone streets, with their 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, and on snowy winter days the district feels like something from a story book.
