Just north of Gamla Stan (Old Town), is the modern heart of Stockholm, called Norrmalm. Composed of a mixture of modern architecture and buildings dating back a couple centuries, it is well served by busses and a subway; parking is limited, and there is an obvious bias favoring pedestrians and bicyclists. This square, on Kungsgatan (King's Street) next to the Konserthuset (Concert House, scene of the Nobel Prize ceremony, out of the picture to the left) serves as an open-air produce market on weekdays; during the evenings, truck-mounted carnival rides are offered. The weekends are devoted to crafts vendors. Scanned from a photographic print. © 1997 Lawrence I. Charters
