Spotting a statue, Mr Monkey investigated. This shows Gustav II Adolf pointing at the ground and saying "Here I will build my city" when starting Sweden's fifth attempt at building a settlement on the Göta river, after troublesome Danes spoilt the first four tries. Mr Monkey decided it was time to go to the harbour, so he set off across the square, past the white fronted Börshuset, the 1824 Exchange Building, to go down Lilla Brommen to the water.
