Let's meet up at Norrbro where the History of Stockholm started. I will point out all the interesting historical buildings, the Grand Hotel, The Opera House, the Parliament, The Foreign Ministry and of course the Royal Palace, which is one of the biggest palace in Europe. Moving on to Stortorget the historical heart of the ancient town. This was the hub where everything happened. You’ll get to experience the narrow alleyways and cobblestone streets while I tell you stories of Stockholm’s bloody past. If I say Stockholm Bloodbath, does i make you curious? The mass killings back in november 1520 is as story with appalling details... But I will also tell you about more peaceful things. How come there is a runestone in a brick wall? Why is there an enormous German church in the tiny island? Why is there no underground garage below the Parliament house?

I have a specialized in the history of the Old Town and how this beautiful city emerged beginning with Citys founding back in 1252. Located between the Baltic Sea and the fresh water lake Mälaren, lets explore the "sweet meet salt" together. Can do other dates and times, just get in touch!
I will bring you swedish cinnamon rolls!
We will stop at interesting spots and listen to stories best narrated by a local expert... Instagram-friendly corners of the island, promise!
