Changing of the Guards at Gamla Stan In Stockholm
The historic district of Gamla Stan has lots of offer, take a stroll along the coast line, witness the changing of the Swedish guards or admire one of the largest palace in Europe owned by the Swedish Royal Family.
I met up with my good friend Ronnie who I initially met in Tokyo, Japan. He showed me all the great places in Stockholm, even the old city.
The food in Stockholm was also amazing, very clean and nutritious.
Gamla Stan is a beautiful district and is the old town downtown Stockholm. It houses the royal palace and many old buildings.
McDonalds Stockholm also served some interesting sauces. I especially liked the bearnaise sauce. Delicious on fries.
The sushi was also off the hook. Fresh Norwegian or Swedish salmon is unbeatable.
The town dates back to the 13th century, and consists of medieval alleyways, cobbled streets, and archaic architecture. North German architecture has had a strong influence in the Old Town's construction.
While the archaeology of the 370 properties in Gamla stan remains poorly documented, recent inventories done by volunteers have shown many buildings previously dated to the 17th and 18th centuries, can be up to 300 years older. There is also a metro station in Gamla Stan with the same name.
