🏘️Storkyrkobrinken - Stockholm - Sweden🇸🇪 ⠀⠀ 📷Nikon D750 - ISO 50 - 24-120mm lens f4G ED VR - 38mm - f/4,5 20 sec ⠀⠀ 🏘️Storkyrkobrinken (Big Church Slope) is a street in Gamla Stan. The street runs from Högvaktsterrassen (Main Guard Terrace)🏛️ to Riddarhustorget (Knight’s House Square)🏠 and Myntgatan (Coin Street). ⠀⠀ ➡️The street has had different names since the Middle Ages, and sometimes it was referred according prominent buildings. In Medieval times, the village church⛪ was on the top of Stadsholmen and this street was the main slope leading to it. During this time we can consider that Storkyrkobrinken was divided in 2️⃣ parts, the one that entered into the city walls🧱 through Saint Nicholas’ Gate and the outer part outside the city walls. In 1422 the inner part of the street was called Sancte Nocilauese port (Saint Nicholas’ Gate) and in 1436 the outer part was named as S:t Laurentii gränd (Saint Lawrence’s Alley), the street was called that way till the end of the 15th century. ⠀⠀ 🕰️In 1520 the street was called Scolestue backen (School Cottage Slope) due to a school🏫 that was built at the street in 1431. In 1596 it was also called Kyrkobrinken🏫(Church Slope) and in 1597 S. Niclaes Brinck (St Nicholas slope). It is possible that it was named after St Nicholas of Myra because on the early 16th century there was a statue of that Saint on the street, he was the patron of merchants and sailors, so the people could make offerings🎁 before shipping⛵ expeditions. ⠀⠀ 🇸🇪During the Swedish Empire, it was called Slottsgatan🏛️ (Palace Street) in 1637, in 1650 and in 1651 respectively the street was called Store kyros brinken🏫 (Big Church Slope) and Svenska Kyrkobrinken🇸🇪🏫 (Swedish Church Slope) to distinguish it from Tyska Brinken (German Slope), also during the last half of the 17th century the street was called Riddargatan🛡️(Knight’s Street) and Riddarhusgatan🛡️🏠 (Knight’s House Street). Finally in 1771 the street was named as we know it today Storkyrko Brinken. ⠀⠀ ❓Did you know that although Swedish is the official language of Sweden🇸🇪, there also 5️⃣ national minority languages recognised by Swedish law: Finnish, Yiddish, Meäkieli, Romani

Keto-orvokki, villiorvokki tai ainakin joku pienen pieni orvokki kera vielä pienemmän öttiäisen. Joka tapauksessa löysin näitä eilen pihamaalla tallustellessani pensasaidan alta. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #orvokki #viola #violet #violetblossom #ötökänelämää #blossom #macro #macro_vision #macro_captures_ #macro_love #thebestoffinland #loves_united_finland #heart_and_nature #finland4seasons #finland_photolovers #beautyofsuomi #loves_united_scandinavia #loves_finland #luontoonfi #nature #kotimaassa #munympäristö #kulttuuriympäristömme #lähiympäristö #kotimaaetsimessä #finland #naturephotography
I love it when a forest path isn't just a path but you have to walk over roots and stones, hopp over some puddles and walk over small bridges 😀👌 love the variety! Makes you focus on your surroundings and take it all in. If the path leads you to a nice forest lake or a waterfall - even better! 😍 This picture is from a hiking path along the small river Enån near Orsa, Dalarna. Well worth a visit! . . . . . . . #dalarna #instadalarna #pocket_sweden #instanature #dalabilden #igscandinavia #discoversweden #discovernordics #visitsweden #visitdalarna #loves_sweden #loves_united_scandinavia #nature_brilliance   #onlyinscandinavia #what_i_saw_in_sweden   #dreamofscandinavia #mittdalarna #allnatureshots #weroamsweden #exploresverige #fiftyshades_of_nature #hikefulness #rsa_outdoors #letsgooutside #sweden_by_us #norrtime #wu_sweden #outdoortones #näräventur
La conocí de casualidad. Mi madre había hablado de mí a la vecina del tercero y esta le dio el teléfono de la sobrina de la prima de la tía de su marido. Era muy buena rapaza, le había dicho. El caso, la llamé. Concretamos una cita, y me puse nervioso.... Siempre me salían las cosas mal, así que le pregunté a un amigo, - Tengo una cita, que me aconsejas hacer, para quedar bien?? - Que vaya otro...... me contestó. Joer!! Me descoló.... Que hago?? ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ @lumix #Lumixgx9 #gx9 #panasonic #lumixandme #lumix_fotografia #lumix1260mm #yeslumix #igersvoriental #igrecommend #instant_es #instaghesboro #ig_catalonia #ilovepiques #ok_people #ongooglemaps #loves_united_scandinavia #livefromcph #featuremevisitcopenhagen #copenhagensecrets #creative_architecture #arkiminimal #arquitecturamx #archilovers #architecture #minimalpeople #minimalism #minimalmood #rsa_minimal #worldneedsmorespiralstaircases #loves_bespic
