Thanks! Looks nice. I bet this is not only random shots ( ;-) ), but the city looks far more organized than eg. Oslo. Don't know wheiter thats good or bad, but you gave me an great inpression from Stockholm! To bad I've never been there, but that needs a change I see..

Only me, or is Stockholm a very yellow city? Any reason?

Gamla Stan The small island in the heart of the town. The oldest part of the city.

Östermalm is the most luxurus part of Stockholm.

Östermalm around Lärkstaden.

Södermalm is the biggest island in Stockholm. People use to say that this is the aristic area of Stockholm where you'll find a lot of alternative cafes, stores and so on... This square is Mariatorget.
image hosted on flickr



Vasatstaden around Odenplan. A typical density and mix of buildings in the innercity.
image hosted on flickr



Vasastaden around Röda bergen. A large area of Swedish grace style buildings.
image hosted on flickr



Kungholmen This is the large Island where Stadshuset is. It is said that it is the part of Stockholm that has most singles. This part of Kungsholmen has a lot of cheap stores and pubs for youngsters.

Quite the statement there, calling Hammarby Sjöstad a suburb.
I have to say that I partly agree though, it's definitely not a planning success.

Well it hasn't been connected to the innercity yet. There is some small industrial areas left in between the innercity and HS.

I think so too. Especially old town is yellow/orange coloured like most italian cities. I guess they had to choose between that or brick facades.

And it's a suburb. Despite the efforts of the PR-people hired by the authorities trying to sell the 'hood, it is a suburb. Planningwise, it's been far from a success. But you can see a gradual improvement over the decades. From "The Million Programme" project -> Skarpnäck -> Hammarby Sjöstad ...
Hopefully the new Lindhagen area on Kungsholmen will become a full-fledged inner city neighbourhood. Like in the old days.

Btw, if I didn't know some parts of Midsommarkransen or Aspudden I would be hesitant to call your neighbourhood a suburb. My goodness, most parts are an urban gem! You should be more proud of it!

Nice thread, Safta!

I just wish you could post more pictures Safta.
Because this is, in my humble opinion, one of the nicest threads in this forum.

This area, S:t Erik, was actually designed by Alexander Wolodarski, the city architect of Stockholm. Since it was finished in 1999 it has both been praised and heavily criticized.

Btw, how did you got this angle from Eniro. I looked at "utikt" but saw it from another angle. :/
