Sigtuna Rådhus, Sweden

Sigtuna has a long history, but is today a small town, far from its former glory. By Stora Torget (Main square) you find the former City Hall, the smallest in Sweden.

It is one of the many charming buildings in this historic town, and goes back to 1744, when it was inaugurated by mayor Erik Kyhlman.

It is a rectangular ochre coloured building with one floor, with a mansard roof and a small clock tower. It has a symmetric facade with the main entrance facing the square flanked with two windows one each side.

It was in use for two hundred years and the last city council meeting was held in the building in 1948.
