Background

The idea to create Stockholm News came up over a beer in Warsaw in 2005, when Tommie Ullman and Mats Öhlén realised that there were not many good and comprehensive English news sources about Sweden and Stockholm.

In Warsaw, Prague, Budapest, Tallinn and a number of other European cities you can buy local newspapers in English. Why not in Stockholm? However, Stockholm News is not yet a journal on paper. At the present time, we do not have the resources to initiate a project like that. Instead we bring you the best English language news cover of Stockholm on the Internet.
