“Cutest little statue”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

The iron boy, or 'jarnpojke' in Swedish, is a tiny figure of a boy sitting down, hugging his knees. It sits in the yard behind the Finnish Church in Gamla Stan. It's extremely cute, especially as people bring him presents of coins, candy and beanies to keep him warm in winter! One of those off-beat spots that make you smile!
