Another staircase-alley in Stockholm old town. The stairs lead down to a restaurant at the basement level
Stockholm Old Town is fringed with narrow downward-sloping alleys that lead to the sea. It's not really obvious that it's the sea. It's more like a tangle of canals that wind around the numerous islands that Stockholm is made of.
This cute mini-elevator is installed in the middle of a dungeon in the Royal castle in Stockholm. It is probably used by the handicapped, or perhaps people with strollers, to take them up and down a short flight of stairs. Pretty and functional.
