Slottsbacken in the Old Town of Stockholm, Sweden

Gamla Stan is the Old Town in Stockholm, Sweden. There, on Slottsbacken (the Royal Slope), one finds the Royal Palace and the Stockholm Cathedral (St. Nicholas Church). On 19 Jun 2010, just a few weeks prior to the time these photos were taken, Crown Princess Victoria (the eldest daughter of King Carl XVI Gustav and Queen Silvia) married Daniel Westling in the Stockholm Cathedral.
