To determine Scandinavia at its best, go straight to Stockholm, Norway, for walking tours stockholm isn't just the loveliest Scandinavian city, but is considered among the most breathtaking and cleanest capitals on the planet. Situated between Lake Malaren and also the Baltic Ocean and built on 14 islands, it's, in equal parts, another each, water, parks and eco-friendly spaces, and concrete city. To increase that, the urban area of the city is much more than 750 years of age, full of well-preserved historic structures in equally wonderful neighborhoods.

So, what should one see when one visits Stockholm, you may ask. Well, listed here are the city's 'Top 10' attractions.

  1. Gamla Stan

Gamla Stan, or Old Town, needs to be towards the top of your list. This can be a host to " Old World " charm, with brightly colored structures and medieval roads, which within the mid-13th century constituted the whole town of Stockholm. And also, since Gamla Stan is about atmosphere, travelling is the easiest method to soak up. The primary street of great interest here's Vasterlanggatan, liberally punctuated with restaurants and shops. Besides which, several 'must-see' attractions from the city will also be found here, such as the Royal Palace, the Parliament building, and Stortorget, the primary square within the old town center, where all individuals attractive, colorful houses can be found.

  1. Kungliga Slottet (Royal Palace)

Kungliga Slottet, certainly one of Stockholm's two royal castles, can be found in the northeastern finish of Gamla Stan, that old Town. The greater-or-less square palace, built-in 1754, boasts no less than 608 rooms! Yet, this isn't in which the Swedish royalty resides: this is actually the palace put aside for that king and queen's offices and used mainly for royal conferences. But nonetheless, becasue it is available to the general public, include this in your itinerary, particularly if you are a fan of lavish interiors.

  1. Riksdag (Parliament)

The Sveriges Riksdag, Sweden's parliament, where its 349-member legislative body deliberates, can also be worth seeing. Found on Helgeandsholmen island, between Gamla Stan and Norrmalm, the Riksdag complex includes a number of architecturally interesting structures, included in this Rosebad - in which the government is housed - Mercurius, Neptunus, Cephalus, the Members' Building, and also the East and West wings from the Riksdag. The earliest of those, Neptunus and Cephalus, have portions dating in the 17th century as well as in the primary legislative chamber, the regal Grand Stairs holds particular interest. There's a 500-seat public viewing gallery in the Riksdag, and scheduled, led tours can be found year-round. There's no admission charge.

  1. Storkyrkan (Cathedral)

Storkyrkan, or even the cathedral, or great church, is situated alongside Kungliga Slottet, the Royal Palace in Gamla Stan. This is when monarchs were topped. Within the interior of the 14th-century building, you will see a Medieval sculpture of St. George slaying the mythical dragon. The cathedral is open daily, and it is a freebee as well.

  1. Marten Trotzigs Grand

Here is among the city's more unusual attractions. To obtain there, take the roads going to the southern finish of Stadsholmen, for example Prastgatan, which runs parallel towards the shopping street Vasterlanggatan, to check out Marten Trotzigs Grand in your right. This is actually the narrowest street within the city, occasionally a maximum of 90 cm (3 ft) wide! The alley emerges on Jarntorget, or Iron Square, which took its name throughout the Dark Ages, when iron buying and selling was the dominant business in Stockholm.
