Colourful Houses & Narrow Streets of Gamla Stan, Stockholm

My favourite area of Stockholm is Gamla Stan; it’s a must see place.

I’m a sucker for colourful buildings like Nyhaven in Copenhagen.

I love the symmetry and architecture of the buildings in Gamla Stan.

Gamla Stan facts:

Gamla Stan means Old Town in Swedish, was first built in 13th century.

The narrowest alleyway in Gamla Stan is called Mårten Trotzigs Gränd and is just 35 inches at it’s smallest width.

Established in 1722, Den Gyldene Freden (translated as The Golden Peace), is one of Sweden’s most well-known restaurants and the second oldest restaurant in the world to have the same surroundings.
