The building to the right is the main office of an insurance company founded in 1746, making it the oldest insurance company in Scandinavia. They used to deal mainly with fire insurance, hence the name.

To our left is a building finished in 1888, and originally it housed an insurance company as well. Today however, it is used by the Parliament of Sweden.

The Chancellery II on Flickr.

The Chancellery, to the right, was built in the seventeenth century. The somewhat misplaced portico, however, was later designed by two architects in the 1790s.

The building to the left is the Stockholm City Fire Insurance Office, and was finished in 1679. As with many other Swedish buildings from this period, it was designed by Nicodemus Tessin the Elder.
