  • My name is Elisabeth Daude. I am a guide in my home town of Stockholm.

  • I am proud to be a Stockholm resident and enjoy the privileges of living here.

  • Stockholm is a dynamic city where you have access to almost everything.

  • It is spacious, a city close to nature.

  • You live the seasons, and every season has its own light.

  • Like the grey light on a rainy day like today.

  • Or the magical light of early July.

  • Or the artificial light of candles in winter. Also stunning.

  • The northern light can only be found here.

  • A big city always consists of small neighbourhoods such asdermalm.

  • dermalm accommodates some of the famous Swedish designers.

  • They have their shops in the SoFo area.

  • I like SoFo because it offers me variety.

  • Every week I can come here and find a new place.

  • This shop combines vintage and new items.

  • It is one of the many shops in SoFo. It’s called Grandpa.

  • This is low-key fashion with a twist.

  • It makes this store very special.

  • The people of Stockholm are quite fashion conscious.

  • When trends start around the world...

  • They first occur in New York, then in Stockholm and then in London.

  • That says a lot.

  • dermalm is a trendy area, but that was not always the case.

  • Not 100 years ago...

  • when the area was extremely poor.

  • In those days up to five families lived in these red houses.

  • You could easily find 40 people there.

  • We are now in Vitabergsparken, one of the many parks indermalm.

  • Vita Bergen, the White Mountain, is really special.

  • There are a few hundred of these buildings in Stockholm.

  • They are mainly inhabited by artists.

  • This house is from the mid-17th century, over 350 years old.

  • We are in the garden of a Swedish artist called Big-Britt Almström.

  • Let's go inside and see if she's busy working.

  • I am a sculptor, trained here in Sweden.

  • I work here and exhibit in Stockholm and the rest of the country.

  • I am totally happy here.

  • We are now atdra Teatern orindraas we often say.

  • This is the centre of the cultural life on the southern island.

  • There are seven different stages.

  • Everybody fits in. From young and very hip...

  • to people who come to listen to old-fashioned music.

  • Everybody fits in and everyone is welcome.

  • This is my secret treasure. Once you visit, youll never forget it.

  • I hope I have shown you...

  • the magic of Stockholm anddermalm.

  • And I hope you enjoyed it.

My name is Elisabeth Daude. I am a guide in my home town of Stockholm.
