We meet at the Noble Museum. My home, Stockholm has one of Europe's most fascinating central plazas where I'll share with you all my favorite history and cultural stories, as well as tips on eating, museums, and city attractions. Join me as we stroll through the 800-year-old medieval Old Town and unlock some of its secrets. Our route will take us from the main square and pass by StorKyrkan, the Great Church. We 'll discuss, its' history and impact on Swedish culture, values, and history. We take a turn down a narrow ally and come to Prästgatan, an important street in early Stockholm history. I relate more history, point out surprising facts, and share a unique Stockholm tradition: "Fika"/Swedish coffee We'll continue to follow Prästgatan toward Vasterlanggatan: a bustling street with good shopping, restaurants and the narrowest street in Sweden. Doubling back; we head over to Ridderholmen and take in the oldest structure of Stockholm, Riddarholmen Church and the spectacular views of Lake Malaren and City Hall. We return to the Royal Palace and wind up the tour. This is a slower-paced tour circuit of Old Town-Gamlastan and nearby Ridder Holmen. My tours are limited to small groups.
