I lived at Sodermalm in a visitors' exchange apartment for a month and found it convenient, a good place to get to by the underground from Gamla Stan, the main historic center, and with many good places to dine from bars to an excellent Chinese restaurant. There are historic parks and buildings and interesting shops. A safe neighborhood for an older single woman. My living room window looked down on the house of Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite and who the Nobel Prize is named for. One can walk along the water' edge all the way to downtown Stockholm and read the histories of all the private old boats, many of them restored fishing boats, and chat with the owners sitting on deck while their children dive into the water. From this walkway, the other islands of the city are visible. In the summer, I venture that Stockholm is one of the best cities to visit in Europe. There are excursion boats leaving daily from many wharves that go to the islands of the Archipalego, small towns and old manor houses around Lake Maaleran, including the summer palace of the Royal Family and the 18th century theatre, one of only two in Europe that still has performances.
