Hammarby Sea City

Most of my pictures on this blog so far have described the old parts of Stockholm. Now it is time to share a few pictures of the new parts. Here is a picture of Hammarby Sjöstad.


Hammarby Sjöstad (roughly translated: Hammarby Sea City or Hammarby Lake City) is a part of Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, currently undergoing major urban redevelopment, It is located southeast of Södermalm.
Before the current redevelopment began, the waterside area was known as Södra Hammarbyhamnen (roughly South Hammarby Port), a mainly industrial zone. The neighbouring Lugnet was a run-down light industrial area, housing an impromptu trailer park.

Another fine shot, Kenta!
