The Stockholm region is home to around 22% of Sweden total population, and accounts for about 29% of its gross domestic product. The geographical notion of "Stockholm" has changed throughout the times. By the turn of the 18th to 19th century, Stockholm basically consisted of the area today known as City Centre, roughly 35 km2 (14 sq mi) or 1/5 of the current municipal area as its mentioned in Stockholm map. In the ensuing decades several other areas were incorporated (such as Brännkyrka Municipality in 1913, at which time it had 25,000 inhabitants, and Spånga in 1949).
The most renowned national museum is the Nationalmuseum, with Sweden largest collection of art: 16,000 paintings and 30,000 objects of art handicraft. The collection dates back to the days of Gustav Vasa in the 16th century, and has since been expanded with works by artists such as Rembrandt, and Antoine Watteau, as well as constituting a main part of Sweden art heritage, manifested in the works of Alexander Roslin, Anders Zorn, Johan Tobias Sergel, Carl Larsson, Carl Fredrik Hill and Ernst Josephson.

Odenplan was already the central hub of the upmarket Vasastan district, but has recently upped its game with a shiny new commuter rail station, underlining its pride of place in the middle of the Swedish capital. One of the best places to stay in Stockholm is the downtown Norrmalm district as you can see in Stockholm downtown map, with its constant activity, restaurants, shopping, and unending distractions. Staying in this central area is perfect for those who want to be downtown amid the vibrance of city life, and great for travelers who only have a couple of days to see what the city has to offer.
