Gamla stan (The Old City), until 1980 officially Staden mellan broarna (The Town between the Bridges), is the old town of Stockholm, Sweden. Gamla stan consists primarily of the island Stadsholmen. The surrounding islets Riddarholmen, Helgeandsholmen, and Strömsborg are officially part of, but not colloquially included in, Gamla stan. The word “stan” is simply a contraction of the word “staden” (“sta’n”), meaning “the city.”
The town dates back to the 13th century, and consists of medieval alleyways, cobbled streets, and archaic architecture. North German architecture has had a strong influence in the Old Town’s construction.

    Beautiful composition indeed.
    I love the look of old towns and cities in Europe, they give me the feeling of enduring and perennial places not to mention that hard to beat feel of walking on history.
