Kista, Sweden

Travel to Kista

V√§sterort [ňąv…õst…ôrňąu ą] is the western part of Stockholm municipality, extending far from the inner city, nearly encircling the autonomous towns Solna [ňąsoňźlňąna] and Sundbyberg, just north of the Vasastan and √Ėstermalm districts of inner Stockholm. Bromma is connected by bridges to the inner-city island Kungsholmen in the east, and to Eker√∂ in the south-west. The municipalities further north of those (Danderyd, Sollentuna, J√§rf√§lla, etc.) are covered in our guide to Stockholm's northern suburbs.

During the 18th and 19th centuries, men of wealth and power have built themselves palaces and manors west of Stockholm. Most of them remain as conference facilities. During the 20th century, the area was transformed from farms to suburbs, as rail, subway and light-rail lines were drawn. While Bromma and Sp√•nga [ňąsp…ĒŇčňąa] are affluent garden cities, the areas of J√§rvaf√§ltet [ňąj√¶rvaňąf…õlt…ôt] (Rinkeby, Tensta, Hjulsta) were built as part of the Million Project in 1960s and 1970s, at the subway, to provide low-cost housing. On the west coast of the lake, Blackeberg [blak…ôňąb√¶rj] is a typical modernist suburb, known for the vampire film Let The Right One In. V√§llingby [ňąveliŇčňąbyňź], built in 1954 as one of the world's first planned multi-functional suburbs, became an icon of the Swedish welfare state. Due in large part to successful co-operation between phone company Ericsson and telecom operator Telia, the Kista [ňą…ēiňźsta] area is a flourishing high-tech cluster, rivalling central Stockholm as the main business district.
