I always enjoy finding/seeking out little known locations and Jarnpojken is one of them! So tiny you could miss it! Leave a coin and make a wish.

Also called "Boy looking at the moon", the statue is only 15 cm tall. It is claimed to have magic powers and brings good luck if you pat the boy's head and leave some money. The sculpture can be found just outside the Royal Palace,...More

Took a while to find it, I walked straight past it once. It's nice to have a look at it. The statue had a cute little cap.

During our free walking tour of the old town, our guide Connie showed us many interesting sites/sights. To many this quirky little guy standing at 15 centimetres, would not be a stand alone attraction. However, there were about 20 of us, taking photos and patting...More

This is the smallest sculpture in Stockholm. It is located in the Old Town and really very small, look out so you find him. In the winter people dress him in a cap to protect him from the snow and cold winds.

Same thing like in Copenhagen with statue of Lille havruge or in Brusel with Manneken Pis. If you will touch the statue, you can wish something or have a good luck!:)

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
