Compering to many other streets here in The Old Town, Prästgatan is a quite calm and peaceful place to visit. Not too many tourists choose to walk this street, probably because it doesn´t exist any shops, cafés or restaurants here. But if you want to get a clue of how it truly was to live here during the Middle Ages, this is certainly the place to visit.

It does look inviting, don´t you think? 🙂

The street was named in 1885. Before then it had different names, such as Svenska Prästgatan (The Swedish Priest´s Street) and the south part of the street was called Tyska Prästgatan (The German Priest´s Street), simply because the Swedish priests used to live on the north part of the street while the German priests lived on the south side.
