Stockholm Municipality or the Ceety o Stockholm (Swadish: Stockholms kommun or Stockholms stad) is a municipality in Stockholm Coonty in east central Swaden. It is the lairgest o the 290 municipalities o the kintra in terms o population, but ane o the smawer in terms o aurie, makkin it the maist densely populatit.

This is purely nominal an haes nae effect on the legal status o the municipality.
