          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
          touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
          take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
          through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
