WHAT’S IN OUR TOUR?
Gamla Stan( Old Town )is a medieval shrine witnessing historic events. Gamla Stan has been largely preserved through the ages. Only one single person has ever been found guilty of trying to destroy it. Who was this person and why did he try ? Why is the narrowest alley only 90 cm ? What is the meaning of mysterious metallic house signs ? Why doesn’t the King of Sweden wear a crown ?

1 Hour and 30 minutes

WHO?
Look for the guide with white/blue umbrella or blue sign.
