Museum of Medieval Stockholm

Some say Stockholm was first settled by a fisherman who caught a big salmon and boasted that it would not end up on the bishop’s table. The bishop overheard him and wanted him arrested, so the fisherman did the only reasonable thing and fled to a nearby island, becoming Stockholm’s original inhabitant.

This story and many more are covered in the Museum of Medieval Stockholm, a museum right next to the King’s Castle in the city center. It was built within an excavated space that was discovered by workers digging into the earth while building a new parking lot.
