The Old Town in Stockholm is the most popular place to visit for foreign tourists. I totally understand this, as the Old Town is an adorable small island dotted with beautiful houses and an old-fashioned atmosphere.
The Old Town is where all inhabitants of Stockholm lived until early 19th century. The island is quite small, only about 700 x 700 meters, and all alleyways have irregular positionings and are cobbled. The oldest building on the island is the church Storkyrkan, raised in 1306. The Royal Palace, raised during the 17th century, is also located here. Located on the island are also five other churches, but the main part of the buildings was raised as residential properties during the 15th and 16th century.
The buildings are painted in saturated yellow, red and green. Many of them have rich decorated gables and every time I visit the Old Town I bump into someone because I am looking up! You find the most beautiful houses around Stortorget and along Skeppsbron, close to the water.
