Stockholm, Sweden: Stortorget

Welcome to the oldest square in Stockholm, which means the idea of having an actual city on this location probably started pretty close to here.

The Stock Exchange building, now used for the Nobel Museum, takes up one side of the square. As you can see, they like their buildings colorful here. Really adds atmosphere.

The next question should be, what's the big thing in the middle of the square? It's a water well. The facility was used until 1856, when the water dried up because the well was up on a hill. The well was moved for a while, but moved back to the original spot for decorative purposes and reconnected to the water supply.
