Places That Should Be World Heritage Sites

Gamla Stan

Stockholm, Sweden

While numerous historic European city centers have made UNESCO’s list, Stockholm’s Old Town is noticeably absent. Dating back to the 13th century, the city center still retains the layout of a medieval settlement, with narrow, cobbled streets weaving across the island, which was once surrounded by a protective wall. Part of the reason for Gamla Stan’s snub may be the relatively poor documentation of the area’s oldest buildings and streets, which many believe are actually older than officially recorded.
