  Vasterlanggatan, Gamla Stan

Of course you won't want to miss this street in Gamla Stan, as it is the main street and completely pedestrianized. Of course it is very touristy, but it is still nice, with lots of shops, cafes, restaurants, and an interet cafe. Alot of the shops sell Swedish glass, Scandinavian sweaters, tshirts, etc.

I would recommend to walk once during the day but be sure to come back at night when the streetlights are on and people are out dining, because the street takes on a special atmosphere in the evening and in many ways is more pretty, especially once the hordes of day visitors have gone.
