Just a bunch of statues. Was interesting looking at the gardens outside the windows. I found Michael Jackson, a nice package ;) and an angry band student who broke her flute.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home

Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
