Have you chanced upon Jarnpojken on a tour around Gamla Stan, the old town in Stockholm? Jarnpojken, the Iron Boy, is a tiny iron figure of a boy sitting down, hugging his knees close. He sits in the yard behind the Finnish Church in Gamla Stan. Like most kids, he is extremely cute, although a very quiet one. He might be a little lonely, sitting there all by himself, looking up at the moon, but visitors & tourists always make him feel special by bringing him presents of coins, candy, flowers and sometimes even hand-knit beanies to keep him safe from the cold!
Find your way to the Finnish Church by following this link on Google Maps. Although an obscure point to place a piece of art, it’s one of those offbeat spots that will definitely make you smile.
