This morning your driver and guide will meet you on the pier.
Begin with a tour of Gamla Stan (Old Town) to explore the narrow winding streets and historic buildings. Storkyrkan, the Great Church, is set in the heart of Old Town. Dating back to the early 1500’s the Lutheran church is Gothic design and has been the setting for numerous Royal weddings.
During your walk, you will pass by Riddarhust, the House of Nobility, dating back to the 17th century which now houses the records of the Swedish Nobility. In past years it served as House of the Lords and a concert hall.
The Royal Palace, the official residence of the King of Sweden, is also set in Old Town.
Your guide will take you to the Royal Armoury an award-winning museum situated in an atmospheric cellar vault beneath the Royal Palace in Stockholm. Here you will find a stunning collection of armors, royal clothing and parade coaches.
Continue onto Djurgården, a natural resort in the heart of Stockholm. Here you will visit the Vasa Museum. This is Scandinavia’s most visited museum, for its maritime history and Housing of the Vasa warship. The Vasa, perhaps the grandest and most ambitious ship ever to be built in Sweden, is the city’s prized treasure. She capsized and sank straight to the bottom on her maiden voyage in the 17th century only to be salvaged nearly 333 years later in 1961.
