South of Folkungagatan. Plenty of restaurants, try Sardin. Also Oxenbloom at Katarina Bangata is a very good place for swedish food.

“Trend in the former workers' district”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

An interesting neighborhood. This was an old workers' "district". Today it is a trendy neighborhood with a lot of small shops. If you don't want to shop you can just walk around.

“Interesting change of Swedish pace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Sodermalm is supposedly the "bohemian" quarter. It's more hip and marketing bohemian, but, if you get off the main streets and into the neighborhoods, you get a sense of being with real Swedes. Not the tourists, not the super wealthy or the posers, but real people with real jobs. I suggest going there for fika or happy hour. If you have shopping to do, it is full of shops and some nice second hand stores.

“Södermalm”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

If you have a lot of spare time you can walk around a little, specially to Katarina Kyrka. If not, don't be too worried about missing it. The best thing about this area are the views from Fjällgatan street. This street itself is nothing special although it looks older than others, with some nice little houses.
