Stockholm, Sweden

Stortorget



[Stortorget - Stockholm, Sweden]


This is in the charming old square in Gamla Stan with the Nobel Museum, a hotel with Danish cannonball still in the wall, a famed Fountain, and a great deal of Swedish history.

Nearby are an obelisk, the Royal Palace (with changing of the guard), and the winding alleys of Gamla Stan.

The obelisk stands nearby the Royal Palace, Stock Exchange, bustling shoppes, cafes, museums, and alleyways.

One of the most important conflicts in Swedish history is still held in memory through the many statues of St. George slaying the dragon (otherwise known as "Denmark").
