With its high-end shopping facilities and
Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely

find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings,
a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet
foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal
Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture.
