Secrets of Stockholm Walking Tour with Swedish Fika
A guided city walk in the Old Town. Discover the labyrinth of charming cobbled streets, alleys and faded mustard and rust-coloured townhouses and small meeting squares. Listen to stories and anecdotes about the city's history.
Admire the statues of the famous singer and songwriter Evert Taube. Walk on narrow streets and admire the decorations at doors and doorways. Find a mix of private houses and gourgeous palaces. What is the Old Town built upon? What is the area known for? Who lives here today? Listen to stories from the past and feel the wings of history.
Why all the four facades of the palace has different decorations? Most of the houses in the Old Town were built in the 17th and 18th centuries, but many were built on top of medieval foundations. The oldest building here is the Great Church from the beginning of the 14th century. But the Old Town is still a vibrant neighborhood. Just over 3,000 people live here and far more work here. Of course, there are schools and daycare centers here, but only two shops that sell food and get green spaces. How many trees do you find? The range of restaurants, cafes and shops is huge. Give yourself time to experience more than just Stortorget and Västerlånggatan. It is only when you enter the narrow alleys that you experience the genuine atmosphere of this lovely place. At the end of the tour - enjoy Swedish Fika - coffe and the traditional cinnamon buns.
