Gamla Stan, or the Old Town as it translates to in English, is the historic city center of Stockholm and one of Stockholm’s most visited tourist attractions. Gamla stan is where Stockholm was founded in 1252, and today it consists of beautiful grand buildings and townhouses, many of which are in a beautiful rust or mustard color, cobbled streets, and squares.
Stockholm city (innerstad in Swedish) is the most central part of Stockholm's inner city within the district Norrmalm. The area is not formally established, but most Stockholmers would consider anything inside the tolls as city. In 1622 the tolls were established but today the only tolls you will see are congestion fees.
Södermalm, in everyday speech Söder, is a neighborhood located in the inner city of Stockholm.
Some of the more well-known streets and squares on Södermalm are Götgatan (mentioned by name 1644), Hornsgatan and Mariatorget.
