Stockholm – Sweden's leading region.

Greater Stockholm is Sweden's leading region and financial centre. Today, the region attracts people from other countries, visitors and investors. It ranks highly in terms of quality of life – public health is good and the level of education is high.


Stockholm County Council is one of Europe's largest healthcare providers, offering everything from telephone advice about self-care to advanced specialist care at university hospitals.

Public transport

Public transport in Stockholm County should be easily accessible, reliable and environmentally friendly. AB Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (Stockholm Public Transport, SL), Waxholmsbolaget and Färdtjänsten are responsible for transport services. The number of travellers rises each year.

Regional development

The County Council plays an important part in the region's development, and a number of major projects and investments are currently being carried out.


Culture strengthens the Stockholm region and makes it attractive to residents, visitors and investors. Art can help to create more healing healthcare environments. The Stockholm County Council contributes to a wide cultural activity. The County Council is also the main financier of the Stockholm Concert Hall and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Residents of our region will meet art and different cultural expressions in hospitals and within health care, in public transportation, especially in the subway. Art contributes to the well-being and safety of people's everyday lives.
