Info about the bridges in the Old Town
The oldest existing bridge in the Old Town is Norrbro (the North Bridge) from 1807 but the oldest bridge in the history of Stockholm was mentioned the first time in 1288. There have been bridges in Stockholm from the very foundation of the city since it was necessary for communications within the city.
Today there are several bridges from long railroad bridges to very short pedestrian bridges. The shortest bridge is the pedestrian bridge Hebbes bro (the Hebbe Bridge) with 35 meter in length. The most beautiful bridge is according to most people Vasabron (the Vasa Bridge) from 1878 which is made of cast iron.
