Some nice riverside residential areas. A lot of people seem to live in modern apartments?

Well they do more or less I guess but many of those areas are
quite newly built (Liljeholmen, Hammarby Sjöstad) so they
are not really representative of the rest of the inner city.

2/3 of all housing stock in the metropolitan area of Stockholm are apartments. This percentage generally rises the closer you get to the city so in a sense, apartments are representative of Stockholm. However, as Skrapebook correctly points out, there are much older, more established areas of the city that most people photograph. I just decided to do a tour of the light rail line that rings the city. I will show some of the "poor" suburbs of Stockholm in my next posts so stay tuned! =D

I'd also quite like to see the middle class and wealthy areas, as well as the poorer districts.

I find residential neighbourhoods very interesting!

Yeah, I do too! It shows the city beyond the touristy bits that everyone sees! Hopefully this thread will continue to entertain you, then. The areas I've pictured so far are a mixture between poorer, middle class and wealthy. The difference between living standards is fairly low in Sweden thankfully so that even those not so well off can still live well.

Took a trip to the extremities of Stockholms län to the small city of Sigtuna. This is the oldest still surviving city in Sweden as it was founded in 900CE. It is a very beautiful little settlement of around 7,200 people right on the edge of Lake Mälaren.

Sigtuna is easily reached from Stockholm by pendeltåg and a very short bus ride.

So without further ado here we go:

Historic Sigtuna

Also, to anyone who can't see the pictures, my bandwidth at my photo provider is low. Hopefully be rectified over the next few days when I tick over to the next month.

Yay, you were there, aswell! Now i only wonder, why i did not have a chance to meet you around here.
Thank you very much for the fantastic picture updates. I am looking forward to see the Kista part.
By the way, i was discovering Sollentuna a few days ago and was surprised to see how different it was from what i imagined (the view seen from the window of pendeltåg somehow gives a wrong impression). Also, there is a nice bay of the Baltic Sea called Edsviken there.

I always thought most Swedish girls are blonde.

It only costs about £2 per month to have access to unlimited bandwidth.

If you take lots of photos, it's worth it I think.

Ok Svarty, now youre just teasing. Awaiting the photos to come back on line.....

Looking forward to your shots of Gotgatan and surrounds. Nothing too special neighbourwise, but somewhere I spent a bit of time.
