Gamla Stan, Stockholm

Many European cities have ardently preserved part of their medieval past, turning their ‘old town’ or ‘Altstadt’ districts into living, pedestrian-friendly museums bedecked with pavement cafes and places to shop. I can’t think of a better example than Gamla Stan in the heart of the Swedish capital, Stockholm. I discovered this gem when I spent a couple of days there last year shooting pictures for stock photo libraries. Winding narrow cobblestone streets, with their colourful buildings give Gamla Stan its unique character. Enchanting at any time, on a snowy winter's day it looks like something out of a storybook
