I loved this little square. It's so small and surrounded by colorful houses. It seems like something out of a fairytale. The really interesting thing is that from it came the city of Copenhagen. It was its historic center, therefore, it is still the heart of all the celebrations, town meetings and even the typical Christmas market. I particularly liked the well, especially knowing that even though it dried up in 1856 because of the land elevation and was moved elsewhere, it was taken back by the neighbors and connected to the city water system. It also has a dark side because Stortorget was the location of the Stockholm bloodbath in November 1520, when, for three days, the Danish-Swedish King Christian II beheaded and hanged 90 people.
