Once the political heart of Stockholm and now its most charming tourist trap, this square has some of the city’s nicest cafes and is a great place to people watch. Tens of thousands of tourists visit daily. The tall buildings around the square are mostly from the 17th and 18th centuries and the Borshuset, the former stock exchange building now housing the Nobel Museum, is the most impressive of them. At the center is the Stortorgsbrunnen well, and it is the KM Zero point of the city. Do not miss the square at Christmas, the market is to die for. All the buildings are significant in one way or another so you should read up on them before you visit.
It’s hard to imagine, but in 1520, the square was also the location of Danish king Kristian II’s brutal murder-execution of eighty two Swedish statesmen who opposed him. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Stockholm Itinerary 2 Days.
