  Central Stockholm
by wadekorzan

Favorite thing: It's helpful when reading about the tips to have an idea of how the city is laid out and wher things are. You can get a good map of Stockhol at the Tourst Center at Sergels Torg Square, which would be my first stop when visiting Stockholm.

In the middle of the city (#'s 2 and 8 on the map) is the old town known as "Gamla Stan". This is a small area best explored on foot. Here you'll find the Rpyal Palace, Changing of the Guard, the Treasury, Armoury, GustavIII's Antique Museum, etc. Also explore the shopping street Vasterlanggatan and Stortorget Square.

Fondest memory: Central Stockholm (#'s 10, 11, 13) is more modern--with the main shopping street Drottningsgatan, Central Station, Sergels Torg, etc. The city hall, which is a must is located at #9, on the island of Kungsholmen. The Nordiska Museum (#5), Vasa Museum (#1), and Skansen (#3) are all very lose to each other in the Royal Garden (Djurgarden).

South of Gamla Stan is the round island called Soedermalm--be sure to explore the street Gotgatan and main square Medborgplatsen.
