Today we only had a few hours in Stockholm before boarding our ferry to Helsinki and Russia. We spent the morning wandering around Gamla Stan, the historic district. 


First, we went into Riddarholm Church. 
The church is used for burials of the monarchs. 


After seeing the church, we walked towards the Stockholm Palace, stopping and souvenir shipping along the way. 
We boarded the boat after that. We were the only ones aboard for a while as everyone was in the city! You can board or leave at any of the cities in the route. 
We stayed up top for a while watching and then explored the ship. After dinner, we went back up top to watch the sunset. It was around 11 pm our time. The boat stays in St Petersburg time.
