The Old town part 4

I should add before you read this that gatan in Swedish means street = )

No special story about these alleys. They just caught my eye when I was walking down Österlånggatan. Apart from the fantastic lights they both meet up, making it a bit of a unusual alley in the old town.
If you ever visit Stockholm it´s easy to end up in the cramped Västerlånggatan where thousands of tourists walk down each day, passing by all shops. But if you really want to see the old town you should take one of the sidealleys and walk through the other parts on your own.
Many miss the real hidden places in a really beautiful place.

BEAUTIFUL shots Alex!

Sweden is a country I've always wanted to visit...

Being of German and Irish ancestry, I just have a natural affinity for Europe and surrounds I guess...

Anyway, kudos...you have a great eye! ;-)

Always these colours : the ocre to catch the sun and the light. The windows are nordic, but the colours of the houses are quiet southly.

Nicholas: Yes, they are more than safe. And in any other case, if you would be in trouble you can only yell out load and the Royal guard will be there to save you =)
