Lidingö is a municipality with about 45,000 inhabitants, with a land area of 30 square kilometers, consisting of the main island Lidingö, and some minor islands. Lidingö contains suburban areas with high-rise buildings as well as single-family houses and a nature reserve. Lidingö is part of the Uppland province.
Lidingö is connected to Stockholm by two parallel bridges at Ropsten, the end station of the subway in the Östermalm district. The light rail Lidingöbanan, as well as buses, carry on to Lidingö. Just as inner Stockholm, Lidingö is in the inner public transport zone.
The Stockholm congestion tax has an exception that favours Lidingö: A vehicle that passes a toll station at Ropsten, and another toll station within 30 minutes, pays no fee. This means that a car can pass from the national road system to Lidingö, and the other way around, without paying (provided that each leg takes less than 30 minutes, which cannot be guaranteed during rush hours).
Lidingö is well within reach for bicycles from central Stockholm, and has some stands for Stockholm City Bikes. 
Sjövägen is a public transport ferry from Nybrokajen in central Stockholm, passing Nacka on the way to Lidingö. 
Lidingö has a lot of nature reserves and a beautiful scenery. Lidingö was also the home of sculptor Carl Milles, humanitarian Raoul Wallenberg, and engineer Gustaf Dalén.
