|Living in Gamla Stan, the oldest part of Stockholm, is a rare privilege, but thanks to SSSB students can live on Stortorget itself, right by the Royal Palace and Storkyrkan. The building dates back to the Middle Ages, and is one of Stockholm’s historic landmarks. This means, for example, that there is no lift and the building only has natural ventilation, but the sheer charm of the building more than makes up for this!|
Gamla Stan is a unique historical environment, making it one of Stockholm’s most popular tourist attractions. In winter, Stortorget’s traditional Christmas market draws large crowds, and on the whole you can expect there to be a lively atmosphere all the time. But most of the hustle and bustle is confined to just a few streets; most of the winding alleyways are peaceful and extremely picturesque.
Not surprisingly, there’s a long waiting list for accommodation at Lucidor. Those who are lucky enough to get a place here live in shared apartments, where between four and eight rooms share a kitchen, dining room and WC/shower. No two rooms are the same, and they vary considerably in size. There are also a few apartments in the building.
