Photographer's Note

Gamla Stan ("The Old Town") is the old town of Stockholm, capital of Sweden.

The town dates back to the 13th century, and consists of medieval alleyways, cobbled streets, and archaic architecture.
Gamla stan is also referred to as the "town between the bridges", because it is one of 14 islands where Stockholm is build on.

This is the Prästgatan ("The Priest's Street"), the most beautiful street for me and stretching from a cul-de-sac west of the Royal Palace all the way to the street Österlånggatan in the southern corner of the old town.

The street Prastgatan differs from most other streets in the old town; there are nearly no shops along the street.
This makes the street feel more ancient. It is when walking along the street of Prastgatan you can image how the old city was several hundred years earlier.

It is a zoomed shot, of course, I shot from the distance.
