Gamla Stan Banner
Gamla Stan is Stockholm's "old town," where the city was founded by Birger Jarls around 1250. It is Europe's oldest and best preserved medieval city. Located on an island south of what is now central Stockholm, it retains much of its medieval character and is a must see for anyone visiting Stockholm. Below are two virtual tours of many of the key points of interest in Gamla Stan. The first is a map-based tour, while the second is a 360 panorama-based tour.
