Stockholm’s Old Town

Stockholm’s Old Town is on a small island and, not surprisingly, has beautiful architecture, winding streets, and lots of tourists.  I’ve mentioned before my love for Romanesque and Gothic churches.  One of the benefits of the Reformation in Sweden is that Baroque fixtures weren’t added to the original Gothic churches.  Not only did I get to visit several Gothic churches, the Swedish ones have beautiful painted ceilings.
