Sundsvall town

Anders Thorsell -

Ideally situated in the middle of Sweden near the mouths of the Ljungan and Indalsälven rivers, the town of Sundsvall lies where Selånger Creek flows into Sundsvall Bay and the Gulf of Botnia.

Our town is located 390 km north of Stockholm. The town of Sundsvall was rapidly transformed to the industrial centre of the Norrland region during the industrial revolution in the 1800s.

In recent years the town has been less depending on heavy industry and more focused on trade and education.

The Sundsvall region, home to some 115,000 people, is the most densely populated area of northern Sweden. It plays an important role, not only in sports, industry and commerce, but also, regionally, in education, culture and the arts. Sundsvall proper has about 55,000 inhabitants.

In July we host one of the largest street festivals in Sweden. The Gatufesten festival attracts up to 100 000 people and is, as the name implies, a street festival.
