Gamla Stan
Some cruise ships sail right up to Gamla Stan, the Old Town, which is the island that lies at the heart of Stockholm. It’s the most photogenic part of the city, known for its narrow, cobbled streets, ancient churches and houses that date back centuries, some of them painted in striking shades of red and yellow. The Old Town is also something of a surprising culinary hub: It has both the city’s oldest restaurant, Den Gyldene Freden (opened in 1722), and the modern Nordic restaurant Frantzén—one of only three places in the country to have been awarded two Michelin stars.
