Södertälje, nicknamed Tälje or Telge, is a city in Sweden in Stockholm County, 30 km to the southwest of Stockholm. While 65,000 people live in the city, the municipality, Södertälje kommun, has 93,000 inhabitants in total. This article also covers the nearby Nykvarn municipality.
Södertälje is built around a canal. Today the city is mainly known for the significant Assyrian/Syrian diaspora, most of them originating from Iraq, and for the Scania truck factory.

Long-distance trains to Gothenburg and Malmö, as well as regional trains, call at Södertälje Syd. The station is located on a bridge across an ocean bay, 50 metres above sea level, with a spectacular view of the city.
