Hej Gert,
This is indeed much more interesting view of the guards than more likely one where they would keep watch stiff like statues. Old town windows look nice of course. I don't know why those striped bands are there.
About the two långgatans I don't think you need to blame social media. If you enter Gamla Stan through metro station or Vasabron, two most likely routes at least for tourists, you are bound to find Västerlånggatan first.

Default To ktanska: striped bands

Thank you Kari,
There are signs on the windows warning that some details on the façades were freshly painted. I guess the striped bands mean to keep people away.
I agree that Västerlånggatan is easily found, but when I travel somewhere and I arrive at a similar street my instincts tell me to go somewhere else and explore the city on my own.
Haver a nice weekend,

Default Österlånggatan

I know you do. But tourists, including me, move like sheep. Thanks for the tip. I try to remember it on my next visit to Stockholm.
