Today's broadcast is from Slussen, in the heart of Stockholm. It's where Lake Mälaren flows into the Baltic, where the Old Town island meets the southern Stockholm island of Södermalm. It’s an important traffic node, bringing together road, bus, rail and underground transport. In this half hour from Radio Sweden we discuss the past and future of Slussen, the Sweet Spot Sweden campaign, meet the band the Stockholm Hamsters, and take a look back at some of the news of the week.

Here are some photos of Slussen today, and the plans for the future.
