From: 'Liber quartus Urbium Praecipuarum totius Mundi'. Cologne, 1588
COMMENTARY BY BRAUN: "Stockholm, which is celebrated for its commerce, large fairs and royal residences, is, however, an elegant city and, by virtue of its natural situation, one of the most secure cities in the entire Kingdom of Sweden because it is situated on a strait, which, moreover, is very deep, so that it is navigable by even the largest ships. [...]
In the foreground on the narrow neck of this strait is a castle, but on the opposite side the mouth of the strait has been so narrowed by pilings driven into the seabed with crossbeams set above them that those seeking to sail in or out can be easily overcome artillery."
Reference: Taschen, Br. Hog., p. 316; Van der Krogt 4134
