Districts?

Did someone get half way through splitting this article up into districts? There are a bunch of created district articles with no info in. I think the article is getting a bit long and could do with splitting up a bit. There is a list of 17 districts buried in the article but not visible yet, but do we really need them all? I think three or four different districts might be a better proposition...

map of 17 proposed districts

The 17 suggested districts are:

These are administrative districts, and the list is not up to date since some districts have been merged. Many of them are of little interest for tourists. /Blist 20:53, 24 May 2007 (EDT)
Administrative districts aren't of much use to tourists, so travel-related districts would be preferred. (Wikitravel:The traveller comes first). Can you help devise a set of districts (maybe half a dozen) that make sense? - Todd VerBeek 21:31, 24 May 2007 (EDT)

The Stockholm School of Economics?

When looking at the See section, the Stockholm School of Economics feels like a somewhat odd inclusion. All the other listings have a more or less obvious tourist appeal. While it might be interesting to include some places where tourists wouldn't normally go, this place isn't the first on my list of potential listings in that category. I'm going to be bold and cut it from the article for now. If someone wants to include it, I'd be grateful for suggestions on what to call the subheader it should be placed under.

The full text of the listing is below. /Alarm 16:00, 20 January 2008 (EST)

  • The Stockholm School of Economics. A time honored institution that has seen some of the most famous people in Sweden come and go in its halls. The school is located in an imposing building on Sveavägen close to the Public Library. Hang around for a while and see the future rulers of the country frolick in their sunday bests. The cafe located downstairs has got some excellent coffee as well.
