IntroductionSigtuna is one of Sweden's oldest towns. This early trading center 40 mi/65 km northwest of Stockholm contains ruins of medieval monasteries that date from the 11th century. In comparison, the town hall is relatively modern: It was built in 1744 and is the smallest one in the country. Take time to stroll along the town's crooked streets (especially Storgatan Street, the main thoroughfare), which are filled with charming, wooden houses and quaint shops. If you have the time, visit the historical museum for an outline of the city's past.
