Gamla Stan is a lovely idea – the very center of Stockholm. And by center, I mean the center geographically, politically, in terms of power, and culture. It’s also where all the tourists go. And for good reason too. It’s beautiful.
And so now, Sweden is another country in the family of countries. It’s got its own challenges, but it is also stable and welcoming. Sweden does what it can to stay out of wars, yet is willing to open its doors to refugees.
