Personal highlights

  1. Östermalm: today one of the most populous and wealthy district of Stockholm
  2. History: meadows and stables, then a military field, only part of the city since 1880
  3. Architecture: inviting to stroll around many neatly aligned 4 to 6 floor buildings
  4. Humlegården: large recreation park in Östermalm, great to enjoy a sunny day
  5. Sights: this district is now hosting multiple museums and many embassies
