Solna is one of Sweden´s largest
cities with 56 000 citizens. It is bordering Stockholm´s city center,
so it can be considered a suburb to Stockholm. In 2003 we jumped off the subway in Solna our last
day in Stockholm on our way to Gamla Stan. In 2010 me and my friend stayed at a hotel in the
outskirts of Solna because we couldn't find a vacant room in Stockholm.
picture shows Solna Centrum, mainly consisting of a large shopping galleria that integrates
parts of the actual center that was covered with glass roofs. Solna´s city hall is the tall building to
the left in the background.
The subway station in Solna Centrum. All subway stations in metro Stockholm are painted in different colors

go to Solna.
