This article covers only the area of Nacka's municipal seat. See Nacka Municipality for other parts.

Nacka is the municipal seat of Nacka Municipality and part of Stockholm urban area in Sweden. The municipality's name harks back to a 16th-century industrial operation established by the Crown at Nacka farmstead where conditions for water mills are good. However, and somewhat confusingly, that spot is not densely populated and the municipal seat is on land that once belonged to Järla farmstead on the other side of Lake Järla.


On 9 December 2014, police in Stockholm, Sweden raided The Pirate Bay, seizing several servers and other computer equipment. These servers were held in a nuclear-proof data center built into a mountain complex in the city of Nacka.[1]
