In May of 2006 I visited my friend A and her family in Stockholm. We went sightseeing. Here are some views from Stockholm Old Town. The buildings here are taller than in Vilnius Old Town, and it really has the narrow street game going.
Wandering around Stockholm, we stumbled upon the changing of the ceremonial guard. I think this could be the royal palace, but I’m not 100% sure.
The same place as above, the name of which I have forgotten. I suppose it wouldn’t have ceremonial guard if it wasn’t pretty important.

This circular courtyard, surrounded by an arched wall, is somewhere in Stockholm Old Town. Too bad I didn’t write down what this building was. I was mesmerized by the multitude of arches. Arches are my weakness.
One of the long, narrow, downward-sloping arched passageways that lead to the round courtyeard, pictured in the previous image.

Stockholm City Hall. As someone whose weakness is arches, I feasted my eyes here. I just wonder what are those little pyramids under each arch, with a sphere on top. Do they have a hidden purpose to slow down the crowds of people that might storm the City Hall one day?
Alley-stairs in Stockholm Old Town. I like nothing more than streets that are all stairs. If they are narrow like this, all the better.
