    Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
    Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
    to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
    island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
    island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
    Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
