Visit Stockholm's oldest and coziest quarter, the Old Town of Gamla Stan. Witness the historic elegance of the exterior of the dominating Royal Palace, and stroll along the narrow, twisting alleys and cobblestone streets. You'll experience the medieval intimacy of what is today a living historical monument of international renown. You'll also see Stortorget and the Great Square, the hub of the Old Town, dominated by the old Stock Exchange, today housing the Nobel Museum and the Swedish Academy.
Rejoin your coach and continue through the city center and on to the Nordic Hotel in the heart of the city, where the world's first permanent ice bar is located. The interior is kept at -5° Centigrade year round. The whole interior, including glasses, is made of pure, clear ice from the Torne River in Northern Sweden. A complimentary drink in an ice glass will be served and the staff will tell you more about the bar and its construction.
