Stockholm City Centre

Stockholm City Centre (Stockholms innerstad, Innerstaden, Inre staden) is the city centre of Stockholm in Sweden. The entire city of Stockholm is also the centre of the Stockholm Metropolitan Area.

Since 2007, Stockholm City Centre is organized into four stadsdelsområden (sometimes translated to districts): Kungsholmen, Södermalm, Norrmalm and Östermalm.[1]

Before 2007, Stockholm City Centre was organized into five stadsdelsnämndsområden (sometimes translated to boroughs): Katarina-Sofia borough, Kungsholmen borough, Maria-Gamla stan borough, Norrmalm borough and Östermalm borough.

The border between the historical provinces of Uppland and Södermanland splits Stockholm City Centre in two parts. 179,185 people live on an area of 28.05 km² in the northern, Upplandian, part, which gives a density of 6,388.06/km². The same data for the southern, Södermanlandian, part is 103,646 people on 7.44 km², giving a density of 13,930.91/km². This border is purely historical and has no administrative significance whatsoever.
