Atmosphere: Gamla Stan

Ever since I first visited Stockholm I have appreciated Gamla Stan, the cobblestoned historic heart of the city. The main passages can be heavy with foot traffic (it is one of the most frequented areas by tourists in the city) but if you dip off and take time to explore and head into the quieter passages, there are many beautiful scenes and gorgeous architecture to also enjoy. With the holiday season in full swing and winter chill around, there is a special quality in the passages of Gamla Stan- candles everywhere outside of stores and establishments and that twinkling of magic very specific to this darkening, cozy season.
