Roslagen is the coastal region of the Uppland province in Sweden. Not a formal region, it is usually considered to contain the municipalities of Vaxholm, Österåker, Norrtälje and Öregrund. As the Stockholm Archipelago, including Vaxholm, has an article on its own, this article focuses on the mainland.

See Stockholm/Northern and Western Suburbs for Danderyd, Täby and Vallentuna.


Norrtälje is the capital of Roslagen.

Kapellskär is not much more than a ferry station.

Öregrund and Östhammar are twin towns in the north.
