Lilla Essingen is a small island in central Stockholm, Sweden, next to the larger neighbouring island Stora Essingen. Both Essingen islands (Essingeöarna) are mainly residential areas, the smaller densely packed with blocks of flats while the larger is scattered with villas. The Essingeleden motorway, part of the Europe-spanning E4, passing over both islands is named after them. Bus route 1 (Stora Essingen - Frihamnen) stops at two places on Lilla Essingen, providing transport to central parts of town and connections to the underground network. Bus route 49 stops at five places, connecting the Essinge islands with Kristineberg and adjacent suburbs.
