Shopping in the old town

Did you know this about The Od Town (Gamla Stan)?

The small island of The Old Town is where it all started back in 1252 when Stockholm was founded. Good trading terms were offered to foreign merchants and for a long period of time the small city had strong ties to the Hanseatic League. This helped Stockholm to grow into one of Sweden’s most important trading centres. Many of the medieval streets and buildings remain in Gamla Stan, which still is the very heart of Stockholm.
