This is simply a must-visit excursion. Gamla Stan would not be complete without a visit to the Royal Palace.

There is so much to see at this place that you never get bored. From the old palace that got burned down to the new one with magnificent interiors and the treasury, the palace is completely worth your time.

You should visit the Royal Placae when in Stockholm. Beautiful palace which is still used today. You even see the rooms where foreigh leaders and crowned heads stay when they visit the royal family. Highly recommended!

Very beautiful palace and quite ornate inside. Absolutely overcrowded with so many tourists though - which sort of detracted. Don't miss the Changing of the Guards outside though - now that was well worth waiting for!!

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
