A city walk about the miserable and unsanitary history of Stockholm from medieval to modern times.

Be aghast by the fact that Europes first green capital, in 2010, once used to be the least environmentally sound!

We walk along the streets and alleys of the Old Town and dwell on environmental och squalid conditions in the history of the city.

We take a closer look at garbage, sanitation, diseases, appalling living conditions, hardship and austerity in areas that today are considered quite fashionable.
