I'd seen this charming little street some years ago and thought it was one of the best sights of the Old Town.
Going back this time it was sad to see it spoiled by ugly graffiti. This looked bad enough in daylight, but at night,...More
Our walking tour took us down Mårten Trotzigs gränd in Gamla Stan. The alley measures just 90 cm (35 in) at its narrowest point. Named for a local merchant from the late 16th-early 17th century. Cool site to see.
The width of this street varies between narrow and quite narrow.
Its history is mildly interesting [spoiler alert] being named after a wealthy merchant who owned the adjacent buildings. It is the only street in Gamla Stad named after a foreigner, which is something, I...More
Mårten Trotzigs Gränd is apparently the oldest street in Stockholm, and that is saying something. It is very narrow, so if you're at all claustrophobic give it a miss. I should imagine that in the summer it would become quite crowded, but when we were...More
When walking down the main street in Old Town you will come across this... street. We decided it is a street only because it has a name It is really more of a sidewalk. But it is fun and quirky nonetheless.
You can't miss this narrow little alley way in the Old Town as it's become a popular quirky tourist attraction so there are giveaway photographers and people getting selfies to identify it. It is what it is: a narrow thoroughfare connecting 2 parallel streets. Go...More
If you blink you will miss it. It is one a few narrow street/alleys ways in Gamla Stan neighborhood in Stockholm. Very narrow, always crowded by tourists and picture taking is the occupation of the moment. Worth a visit if you could find it. We...More
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
