Gamla Stan, the Old Town, is one of the largest and best-preserved medieval city centers in Europe, and one of the foremost attractions in Stockholm. This is where Stockholm was founded in 1252.  All of Gamla Stan and the adjacent island of Riddarholmen are like a living pedestrian-friendly museum full of sights, attractions, restaurants, cafés, bars, and places to shop. Gamla Stan is also popular with aficionados of handicrafts, curious, and souvenirs. The narrow winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in so many different shades of gold, give Gamla Stan its unique character.  

Dinner on your own but we’ll look for a place where we can all eat and everyone is welcome to join us.  Don & Jon will purchase the first round of drinks for everyone joining us and you can purchase other/additional beverages and dinner for yourselves.  If you want to explore on your own you’re welcome to do so, this is a “casual” adventure.

Breakfast at hotel.

Explore the beautiful city of Stockholm with a morning panoramic city tour covering many of the city’s highlights before ending at the famous Vasa museum.

Vasa Museum

This is why Don & Bev and Jon & Kim are going back to Stockholm, as their visit over 20 years ago amazed them so that they could not visit Scandinavia without seeing the Vasa again.  The Vasa is the only preserved seventeenth-century ship in the world and a unique art treasure. More than 95 percent of the ship is original, and it is decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures.  The 69-meter-long warship Vasa sank on its maiden voyage in the middle of Stockholm in 1628 and was salvaged 333 years later in 1961. For nearly half a century the ship has been slowly, deliberately and painstakingly restored to a state approaching its original glory. The three masts on the roof outside the specially built museum show the height of the ship's original masts. Today the Vasa Museum is the most visited museum in Scandinavia, with over one million visitors a year.

Enjoy the Vasa museum as long as you wish, or if you’re an ABBA fan visit their museum.  Other options include Royal Palaces, historic City Hall and many more options.  Lunch and dinner on your own, make your way back to the hotel on your own.
