From Gamla StanThe historic (and tourist) centre of Stockholm, you can get to Norrmalm, today’s centre of Stockholm, via Drottinggatan. The “modern transformation” of the district in the 1940s and 50s, a large part of the historic buildings fell victim, the cityscape since then dominated by functional concrete buildings.
Named after the sculptor Johan Tobias Sergel, Sergels torg is Stockholm’s central square, in close proximity to the metro junction T-Centralenthe central station(Stockholm C) and the central bus station(Cititerminalen). The square is flanked by the Parade department store Åhléns, Sweden’s largest department store chain, and Kulturhuset, a municipal institution for young and old (we recommend the restaurant on the top floor with a rooftop oasis and great views).

The Norrmalm district
Norrmalm is not just a district, but one of Stockholm’s four central districts, along with Södermalm, Östermalm and Kungsholmen. It includes the districts of Norrmalm and Vasastan, as well as the two islands of Skeppsholmen and Kastellholmen. Note: the municipality(stadsdelsområde) and the district(stadsdel) Norrmalm have the same name, which can lead to confusion.
