Ropsten

Ropsten, meaning "Hailing Rock", got its name from the fact that there used to be a ferry service across the water to Lidingö, and people would stand by a large rock and call across the water for a ferry. The rock was variously called Roparstenen, Roparestenen, Rope Sten or Roop Sten on old maps. While gone now, the rock was at most 4-6 meters wide, and was situated approximately 20-30 meters out in the water where the bridges to Lidingö go nowadays.

The eponymous rock would have been approximately where the first bridge pillars to the right are.

The moving sidewalks here are so long that they come with benches to rest on for the times when one must walk.
