Part of the old town, Riddarholmen is a small islet housing a number of restored 17th-century palaces and a medieval burial church of Swedish monarchs. Surrounded by three private palaces, one of which has a medieval tower, the island's central square is dominated by the 19th-century statue of Birger Jarl, the founder of the city. Stroll to the western end of the islet for panoramic views of the bay and abounding photo opportunities, especially at sunset.

  • This church is also one of the oldest churches in Stockholm.This is near to Gamla Stan.You can either reach here from central station or take a tram. The sun view from the church was beautiful.The building architecture is very rich.You can take good photos here.There is separate price for entry here.Better I recommend you can take daily pass so that you can enter other places too.
  • A small island in the heart of Stockholm that is interesting since the place is quiet as compared to others. For a person who does not like crowded places, this one is perfect. It was cloudy when I went there, yet the view was still captivating!
