DSC00739, Gamla Stan, Stockholm, Sweden

    Newer Older

    Gamla Stan, situated on the island of Stadsholmen, is Stockholm’s old medieval town that emerged in the 13th century. Gamla Stan is home to the present Royal Palace, where apartments and an armory offer an excellent insight into the past. A ceremonial changing of the guard takes place at noon on weekdays. The oldest city wall (1250), a simple stone wall which gave the city its characteristic shape of a heart, can also be seen there.
