Old Town is an intriguing place where trade, betrayal, and even murders took place. You'll get insight into the long-lasting German influence and the many attacks of the Danes during the Middle Ages. Due to the Swedish neutrality, nothing has been destroyed here in the last 400 years.
You'll be taken through the narrow cobblestone streets, passing the Royal Palace and the place where Stockholm's first synagogue, founded in 1790, is located.
Stockholm is also home to the Conservative Synagogue, also known as the Great Synagogue. Inaugurated in 1870, it still has an active congregation of more than 1,000 members. On the walls of the entrance, you can read the names of Holocaust victims. We'll also see the Raoul Wallenberg monument, which commemorates the Swedish diplomat who helped save thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Nazis. Leaving the Synagogue, we'll pass by the beautiful Jewish cemetery before heading to the next highlight on the itinerary, the Vasa Museum.
In the most impressive museum Sweden has to offer, you'll see the Vasa ship, built by the renowned Jewish shipbuilder Henrik Hybertson. The Vasa sank in 1628 and she is still in perfect condition, the only one of its kind in the world.
Followingyour visit to the Vasa Museum, you'll be taken to the Ice Bar, where you'll be wrapped in furs (provided for you) and have the opportunity to taste the prized vodka. The tour ends with a drop off at the Ice Bar.
