Today we’ll explore some of Gamla Stan, the old town of Stockholm, situated on an island. Stockholm is actually sometimes called the Venice of the North it has so many islands. It’s built around 12 islands and has 42 bridges.
We stopped at the Nobel Museum, but it was late in the day so we’ll plan to tour tomorrow. We stopped for a coffee in the café.
From the Nobel Museum, just around the corner from the Kungliga Slottet, we walked around Gamla Stan some more. The square outside the Nobel Museum, Stortorget, is ringed with small cafés and shops. Some of the patrons were snuggled up in blankets provided by the café. The buildings appear to date from the 1660’s.
It took a little exploring , but we found what is reputed to be the smallest street in Stockholm
We didn’t walk down, but the width at the bottom apparently narrows to 90cm (35″).
