“My short official presentation of Old town: Its the place where the capital of Sweden, Stockholm was founded 1252 and that it has attractions, restaurants, cafes, pubs and shopping. And has stores and places for crafts, curiosities and souvenirs. The buildings is from the middle ages and has basement vaults used by for example restaurants serving food. In old town you can find beautiful churches, museums and the royal castle. Old Town is worth visiting every time for tourists, but especially nice at the summer time, when its possible to walk around in Old Town and continue further by the close by water, and take the boat across to "Royal djurgården" where there is attractions like "Skansen" and "Gröna Lund" and "Waldemars Udde".”
“Fotografiska is the largest photography museum in the world. They are founded 2010 and showcase the greatest photographers, whether they’re just emerging artists, or already famous internationally. Fotografiska also has an excellent restaurant with a sustainable approach by sourcing food locally, focus on low-impact ingredients out of concern for environmental impact, and minimize food waste. Also has a great view!”
