Europe, Sweden, Stockholm

Storkyrkobrinken (Swedish: "Big Church Slope") is a street in Gamla stan, the old town in central Stockholm, Sweden. Leading from Högvaktsterrassen ("Main Guard Terrace") near the Royal Palace down to Myntgatan ("Coin Street") and Riddarhustorget ("Knight's House Square") it forms a parallel street to Salviigränd and Stora Gråmunkegränd and is crossed by Trångsund, Prästgatan, and Västerlånggatan. The street's present name stems from the vicinity to the cathedral Storkyrkan.
