This rather quiet neighborhood revolves around a
postcard-like park with a dramatic fountain in its
center and is definitely one of Stockholm’s showcase
neighborhoods. Mariatorget, a central residential
area, is the best Stockholm has to offer when it comes
to juxtaposing architectural masterpieces with
sophisticated art galleries, coffee shops and bars.
Stockholmers love to spend their weekends in the park

Hello 477bradp! The room safe is 14" wide, 14" deep and 8½" high. It wouldn't fit in the safe lying flat, but will fit at an angle, as long as the depth works.
