Photos of Gamla Stan (Old Town), Stockholm, Sweden (June 28-July 1, 2008)

Stortorget, Gamla Stan's main square, is lined with colorful 18th century buildings
A statue of St. George and the Dragon. A similar statue can be found in Storkyrkan, Stockholm's 13th century cathedral, only a few blocks away.
