More Gamla Stan streets

Two more quiet alleys in Stockholm´s Old City, Gamla Stan. Don´t you just love the colours of the buildings?

From the mid-19th century to the early-mid 20th century Gamla Stan was considered a slum, as many of its historical buildings were left in disrepair. From the 1970s and 80s, however, it has become a tourist attraction as the charm of its medieval, Renaissance architecture and later additions have been valued by later generations.

  1. Ooit verguist en nu geprezen. Zo gaat het met meer dingen maar het ziet er inderdaad prachtig uit.

  3. Yes... I really do like the colours. The alleyways are no place for a person with claustrophobia.

  5. It's wonderful that this area has been renovated and gentrified as it's very beautiful and unique. I wish we had these kinds of areas in our cities.
