St George and the Dragon

This statue on Köpmantorget (the Merchant Square) is a copy in bronze of the St George and the Dragon statue that can be seen in Storkyrkan (Stockholm's Cathedral), also located in the Old Town.

Streets in the Old Town

Most of the houses in the Old Town are from the 17th and 18th centuries.

The town was a slum until a few decades ago, but it is now renovated and is a charming place to visit.
