Overview

2014 UPDATED Streetwise Stockholm Map - Laminated City Center Street Map of Stockholm, Sweden - Folding pocket size travel map with metro

This map covers the following areas:
Main Stockholm Map 1:10,000
Gamla Stan Map 1:6,000
Stockholm Metro Map no scale

It's not all Blonds and Volvos in Stockholm (although you couldn't throw a Swedish meatball without hitting several of either). No, Stockholm is equal parts history, culture, and food, all surrounded by water. Lots and lots of water. Tooling around the islands in the middle of the city you might think there is more water in Stockholm than land mass. You might be right. There is so much surrounding nature that you can easily alternate experiences, culture and history versus the fresh outdoors: a visit to the ghost like Vasa ship then an amble through verdant Djurgården Park; a Millennium tour through Södermalm followed by a ferry tour through the islands; a slice (or two) of luscious äppelkaka apple cake then a stride along the waterfront. Balance is the key to a pleasurable life in Stockholm. Part of the pleasure is the abundance of good places to eat. From the ten (yes, ten!) different variations on gravad lax at Lisa Elmqvist in the Saluhall, to the afternoon tea spread at Berns Hotel, to the über happening (and well worth it) B.A.R, you can truly stuff yourself silly. And then, well sated, you can take a brisk jaunt in the park and walk it all off. Balance, my friend, it's all about balance.

About STREETWISE® Maps

STREETWISE® is the first map to be designed with modern graphics and is the originator of the laminated, accordion-fold map format. We've set the standard that every map company has imitated but never duplicated. Our mission is to make you feel comfortable, to make you feel safe in a place where you've never been before and to enable you to experience a familiar place more fully.

The company was founded in 1984 by Michael Brown, who had been in international publishing for many years, setting up subsidiaries for textbook publishers. In the 1970's, Brown traveled extensively throughout Africa, India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Brown would take a large paper map, cut out the city center, folded it up and slip it into his pocket, thus preventing him from looking like a tourist in areas where discretion is the better part of travel. This was his tool for surviving.

After many years on the road, Brown settled back in New York and decided to start his own business, based on the adaptations he had made to maps in his travels. His goal was to give someone the ability to navigate easily in unfamiliar terrain.

He started with a new map format: the accordion fold. Such a simple idea, but at the time it was revolutionary. No more struggling to fold an awkward, oversized paper map. This new format would enable the user to blend in like a native, instead of stick out like a tourist. Brown then added lamination to ensure that the map would be a lasting tool.

More important than the format was the design of the map itself. It had to be a map that not only succeeded above and beyond any map he had used, but was esthetically appealing as well. The look of it had to be as striking as the functionality. Color was introduced in a way that was never seen before in a map - vivid purple for water, soothing gray for the background of street grids, gold to highlight elements of the map. Clarity, conciseness and convenience in a very stylish package.

Building the business was a 24 hour job. Brown sold the maps during the day, zipping around Manhattan making deliveries on his Harley Davidson. At night he packed the orders and did the design work. More titles were added, each title requiring months of research and design.

Today, STREETWISE® produces over 130 titles for major destinations, regions and countries throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Asia. We have grown from the back of a motorcycle to selling millions of maps around the world.

Yet each title is still painstakingly researched and updated. STREETWISE® is one of the only, if not THE only map company that conducts research by walking or driving an area to ensure accuracy. After all, what good is the map if what you hold in your hands doesn't match what you see on the street sign? This lengthy fact checking results in superior accuracy; in effect, we've done the work, now you have the adventure.

In the end, it's not about the map, it's about getting out and finding your own authentic experience wherever you go. It's about being in a city or a region and discovering things that you never thought you would find. You can do this if you have confidence and you have confidence if you have a great map. STREETWISE® is the great map that you need.

    Incomplete map of Stockholm

    This map focuses primarily on the central, tourist centers of Stockholm and does not give complete coverage to the larger metropolitan area or regional maps. We therefore did not use the map on our recent Stockholm visit and relied instead on the pullout laminated map that was included in DK Eyewitness Travel Stockholm guide. The DK map covered more area, could be folded easily to put in a jacket or shirt pocket, and had the detail we needed to get around beyond the central neighborhoods

    Looks great so far

    We believe this looks great but the proof will be when we actually use it during our trip a couple of months from now. I have used the one for Amsterdam very successfully so I have high hopes for this one.

    Get them all the time!

    I LOVE the Streetwise maps. I purchase them before each trip and find them to me essential when I take off on my own. Accuracy and clarity are spot on. I will be using the Stockholm map on my upcoming trip in August and expect it to be as good as all the others I have.
