The place where Olof Palme, Swedish prime minister, was murdered. Regardless of political sentiments, it is an important part of modern Swedish history and should be commemorated with more than a plaque. Only worth a visit if you find the story particularly interesting.

Some have argued that this is a small, barely visible plaque that is easily missable (correct on both counts) and nothing special at all. They miss the point. The simplicity is exactly what the man it commemorates--Former Prime Minister Olof Palme would probably have wanted....More

There is nothing here except the plaque on the ground. But of course if you want to visit the place where Palme got shot this is the place.

This is the place where the then Prime Minister of Sweden was shot walking home with his wife after watching a movie at the Grand Cinema further north on the same street, Sveavägen. The murderer has not been found until today.

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
