Gamla Stan (Old Town - Barrio Antiguo) Stockholm

Gamla stan (The Old Town), Staden mellan broarna (The Town between the Bridges), is the old town of Stockholm, Sweden. Gamla stan consists primarily of the island Stadsholmen. The surrounding islets Riddarholmen, Helgeandsholmen, and Strömsborg are officially part of, but not colloquially included in, Gamla stan. The word "stan" is simply a contraction of the word "staden" ("sta'n"), meaning "the town."

 

La "Ciudad entre Puentes" es la Vieja Ciudad de Estocolmo, Suecia. Esta formada principalmente por la isla de Stadholmen y rodeada por varias islas pequenias: Riddarholmen, Helgeandsholmen y Stomsborg.
