Fridhemsplan is a plaza of Kungsholmen, Stockholm and a metro station, where the blue and the green lines of the Stockholm metro intersect. The name Fridhemsplan was given 1935, after the major street Fridhemsgatan crossing the area. Before that, the area was simply known as Kungsholmen toll station.
The adjacent shopping mall Västermalmsgallerian targets young middle-class customers of the surrounding area. It replaced the infamous underground "square" at the intersection of Sankt Eriksgatan and Fleminggatan streets. Fridhemsplan is known for its many low cost bars. Fridhemsplan now also has a major STF hostel.
