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 ?

DURATION 

approx. 1 Hour and 30 minutes

      Adi was a great tour guide! Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and answered lots of questions! The tour was almost two hours and covered everything from history to politics and even IKEA! Tip - bring some cash as the tour doesn't always end near an ATM.
