Old bicycle at Riksbron and Norstedt Building in Stockholm, Sweden.

Riksbron (Swedish: “The National Bridge” or “The State Bridge”) is an arch bridge in central Stockholm, Sweden leading from Drottninggatan on Norrmalm 44 metres over to Riksgatan on Helgeandsholmen.

The name is derived from the bridge’s proximity to several buildings of national importance, including Riksdagen, the Parliament Building; Rosenbad, the Prime Minister’s Office and the Government Chancellery; and the Sager House, official residence of the Prime Minister.

The Norstedt Building (Swedish: Norstedtshuset) is the main office of P.A. Norstedt & Söner AB on Riddarholmen in Stockholm.

The building, designed by Magnus Isaeus and built in 1882-91, features a spire-like roof, which is a well-known silhouette on the skyline of central Stockholm.

Bridge Vasabron is passing in front of the building and Gamla Riksarkivet (“Old National Archive”) lies south of it.
