What you'll do

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?
