In Gamla Stan there are beautiful palaces and gorgeaous little streets full of history.
The nicest thing there is walking on the little streets around the main square, Stortorget, where there are plenty of cafes and nice stores.
You should also walk by (and maybe inside) Storkyrkan, Stockholm's
cathedral, that was built back in 1306. Kings are crowned there and it's possible to imagine Napoleon's archrival Bernadotte founding the current dynasty back in the 19th century.
Pros: history, beauty, style
