Really feels full of locals - nice bars slightly away from tourist hub. Great shops and fantastic walk right around island - no cars, beautiful and interesting views and an outdoor swimming location

Just a short walk from the Old Town Sodermalm gives you a non-touristy view of Stockholm with excellent views across the city - well worth a visit.

A unique mix of grotesque 1960s concrete urban vision
and cosy historical Swedish brick houses, Slussen has
become one of Stockholm’s most architecturally edgy
