Well some of it had to go so we could get the tunnelbana, but 90% was just pointless destruction.

Great thread! Sad to see some wonderful parts of the city are gone or have been replaced by "modern" buildings But Stockholm is still wonderful

I agree, in spite of some faults, Stockholm is marvellous.

I agree, I love Stockholm but sadly a lot has been lost here aswell despite not being a part of WW2. Most of the damage was done when Sweden was a very rich country and pushing hard to become modern, old narrow streets were to be replaced by wide multi lane roads, the tramcars were replaced by the underground, 18th century palaces were replaced by modern office buildings.

Not all was bad but they went to far.

Brunkebergstorg again, facing north in 1896.


Brunkebergstorg today. The riksbank building built in 1976 dominates the square.

How sad, I thought the commies in Warsaw were cruel, but I see capitalist Stockholm wasn't spared the pain of modernism's sterility. I wonder if we'll look back on our current nostalgia for the old and historic and think how silly we were like in the 50's and 60's, nah, I don't think so.

Very interesting thread. Compared to most German cities still a lot of the old seems to have survived in Stockholm. But I heard that even in Germany the economic boom of the 1950s and 60s led to more destruction of historic buildings than World War II.
The Brunkebergstorg is a sad example, though.

@Urbanista: it will be interesting to see if our children will blame us for our contemporary architecture.

No way!
The didn´t have to destroy unbombed buildings.
That amount was way more than anyone can even imagine.

C. But overall Stockholm still looks quite okay, you even have this Gamla Stan district. Fly to Frankfurt, Cologne or even Stuttgart and you know how 1950s architecture looks like

Thankfully the major destruction was contained to the lower Norrmalm area.
