Gamla Stan - in pictures

Stockholm's Old Town and I have a love/hate relationship. The most picturesque part of the Swedish capital is also the most pretentious, overpriced and frequently tacky. Then why do I insist on going there every time I'm in Stockholm? Even if it happens to be in the middle of the night? Or at 6AM? In winter?

Gamla Stan is waking up...

Green, red and yellow. Three of the most photographed buildings in Sweden.

What is that thing above the street, I don't know. But it does look like seaweed.

Now fully awake and ready for another day of rain and slush...
