An Old Town walk on Prästgatan (The Priest Street) Part II

Prästgatan runs along what used to be Stockholm first defence wall.

Pictures taken by Boscorelli on July 14th

Start where the last post ended and notice something at the left corner


It is a 1000 year old rune stone that someone has used as filling material and an canon placed there during the 1600's.


Turn to the left and look back at the part of Prästgatan which was posted in the last post


Then turn around and start walking on Prästgatan




Keep walking




Turn around and look back


Then turn around again and walk down to Tyska Brinken




Look down to the right on Tyska Brinken


Look up to the left on Tyska Brinken and covered up is the German church (Tyska Kyrkan)


Turn right a bit and start walking up what once was called Tyska Prästgatan (The German Priest Street)


Turn around and look back


Turn around again and move up Prästgatan






Look back a bit


The German church


Turn around and walk up Prästgatan


Look back


Turn around again


To the left Tyska Stallplan


Turn more to the left and the whithe school is the Estonian school and the red is the Nicolai School


Turn even more to the left and see the building where painter Karl Larsson was born


A bit more to the left and walk up there


And look down the narrowest street in the Stockholm (90cm) Mårten Trotzigs gränd


Look to the right


Turn around and there is the last part of Prästgatan


Go down that part


To the right Österlånggatan


Look to the left


And end the walk on Prästgatan looking back up the street


That was the end of this walk on Prästgatan

Reach the square


Look up Själagårdsgatan to the right of the square


Get over to the other side of the square and turn around and look back a bit




Turn around and head up Svartmangatan


Look to the right just before leaving the square


Keep walking on Svartmangatan


Look to the right up Tyska Skolgränd


Turn to the right and look back down to the square


Turn around and continue walking on Svartmangatan




Look to the left down Tyska Brinken


Turn right and look up Svartmangatan


Turn some more to the right and look up Kindstugatan


Some more to the right

A sunday on Södermalm

Just a few pictures from today.

I havn't started my usual photo walks of Stockholm this year yet but here are a few pictures.

What is left of a few buildings from the 1700's on Hornsgatan.






When crossing the bridge from Södermalm to Liljeholmen today I saw people having a nice time in the sun.




A soft start with quite a small update!
