The film guide to Stockholm

"Film has dreams, film has music. No form of art transcends ordinary consciousness the way film does, delving straight into our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul.”

Ingmar Bergman

Södermalm

Greta Garbo grew up on the edges of trendy Södermalm when the area was still a poor, run-down working class neighborhood. It is hard to imagine that the star of silent cinema was born in a tiny studio apartment at Blekingegatan 32 on September 18, 1905. That building has since been demolished, but the house located there now is still referred to as the Garbo House. Greta Garbos Torg, the square near Katarina Bangata named after her, is a lush cobblestone place, perfect for contemplating on the Hollywood legend and Söder’s transformation.
