A municipality to the north of Stockholm, Solna is a hair’s breadth from the capital. Solna offers attractive housing, successful businesses, excellent communications, first-class public services and a rich range of culture and sports. As it happens, many of Stockholm’s big visitor attractions and amenities are right here in Solna. People will catch the metro, bus or commuter train up to see concerts and matches at the Friends Arena, idle in the grounds of any of three former royal estates or head for a shopping expedition to the Mall of Scandinavia.
You could also revel the relaxing scenes on Brunnsviken, a finger-like saltwater lake on Solna’s east side, and pay homage at Filmstaden, the studios where Ingmar Bergman’s classic movies were shot and edited.
