In the northern reaches of Sweden, the small town of Gammelstad offers a glimpse into the country’s past. With its well-preserved collection of historic buildings, charming atmosphere and rich cultural heritage, Gammelstad is a one-of-a-kind destination. At its heart lies the town's most famous attraction, the Gammelstad Church Town. This unique complex, and UNESCO World Heritage Site, consists of over 400 wooden cottages that were built to provide lodging for travellers visiting the local church. Today, the Church Town is a well-preserved example of traditional Swedish architecture, where you can explore its winding streets,
admire its historic buildings and learn about the town's rich history. Make sure to swing by the Nederluleå Church, considered one of Sweden's oldest and most important churches. Built in the 15th century, this historic building is a masterpiece of medieval architecture. Step inside and admire its stained-glass windows, intricate carvings and beautiful frescoes. Gammelstad’s surrounding countryside offers a wealth of opportunities for outdoor activities, including hiking, fishing and canoeing - or simply enjoying a picnic by a serene lake taking in the natural beauty of the region.
