Old Town is an atmospheric mixture of pomp and history, with ceremonial buildings surrounded by a lattice of medieval lanes and alleyways.
Close by to the east is the tiny island of Skeppsholmen, with fantastic views of the curving waterfront, while to the north is the modern center, Norrmalm, with its shopping malls, huge department stores and conspicuous wealth, plus the lively Kungsträdgården park and the transport hub of Central Station.
East of Norrmalm is the grand residential area of Östermalm, southeast of which is the green park island of Djurgården, home to two of Stockholm's best-known attractions: the extraordinary seventeenth-century warship, Vasa, and Skansen, Europe's oldest open-air museum.
South of Gamla Stan, the island of Södermalm was traditionally Stockholm's working-class area; it's known today for its cool bars and restaurants and lively street life. To the west of the center is Kungsholmen island, which is coming to rival its southern neighbor with its trendy eateries and drinking establishments.
