the town between the bridges

The Gamla stan/Old town on a hazy evening. We are on our way from Gröna Lund amusement park by boat. Also called The town between the bridges, the Old town dates back to the 13th century, and consists of medieval alleyways, cobbled streets and archaic architecture. North German architecture has had a strong influence in the Old Town.

A town between two bridges is may kind of place. Medieval alleyways too and meandering streets sounds like fun to wander.
