What to see in Stockholm in one day
Since my trip came up a day before departure, I did not have time to study the guidebooks at all.
But during my breakfast in a cafe, I started a conversation with a local lady, who quickly found a map for me and marked the places that were must-visit.
I have to mention, that ABBA Museum, the Oceanarium, Luna Park, Carlson and the metro were not in my plan at all. I just wanted to walk around the city and feel its atmosphere.

Marten Trotzigs Lane. The narrowest street in Stockholm.
On the way from the Royal Palace in the direction of Södermalm, you can look into the narrowest street in Stockholm -
Mårten Trotzigs gränd.
It is not a picturesque place at all, but it will bring you down the bridge.
Södermalm is one district in the central part of Stockholm city, which is located on the island with the same name. I walked there after visiting the Old Town.
The best panorama of Stockholm.
The island of Södermalm is the place that offers the most beautiful view of Stockholm.
Following the recommendations of the local lady, I went to observe this scenery over a cup of coffee in one very popular place in Stockgolm.

It is a classic panoramic outdoor terrace stretching along the bank for few meters.

And don't forget about some souvenirs. What to bring from Sweden?
Of course, you have to buy some gifts with the image of a moose, the most popular animal in Sweden!
You will find a wide variety of different cute souvenirs with the moose from T-shirts, baseball caps, mugs, spoons, coins, magnets, postcards, plush toys, badges to even the cookie cutters in the shape of a moose.
There is a reason why the moose is the icon of Sweden.
By the XIX century moose were on the edge of extinction in Sweden because of hunting. And in order to preserve the population of these animals, they took protection measures.
As a result, the moose population has grown to a huge number all over Sweden. This even caused the establishment of a new road sign in the country, warning the drivers about a possibility of a moose on the road. Such signs are now widely used on magnets and postcards.
