Emerging from its hardscrabble roots, the Sodermalm district of Stockholm has become a mecca for chic young Swedes. An industrial center up until the last century, Sodermalm now churns out an altogether different product: boutiques and bohemians.
Located just south of Stockholm's Old Town, the district is trendy enough for its neighborhoods to be a playground for the characters of Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy and have abbreviated nicknames for its neighborhoods. If you want, you can look just like Lisbeth Salander after scouring the shops of SoFo — the area south of Folkungagatan. Or, if you want to see art instead of be it, check out the galleries on Horngatspuckeln.
Södermalm shortened to “Soder”, is a beautiful district situated in central part of Stockholm. Covering a large island formerly called as Ason, the district has a population of around 99,685 residents. The neighborhood is also known as one of the... more most densely populated districts situated in Scandinavia. Other than that, the district is well linked with surrounding place through a number of bridges. Södermalm is presently known as the home of alternative culture, bohemian and also for a range of cultural amenities. There are wealth of sights which are worth visiting in Stockholm, especially in Södermalm like Gota Lejon, Soder Torn, Sofia Kyrka, Katarina Elevator and many such sights.
