The Old Town in Kalmar

Address: Gamla stan Kalmar

The medieval center of Kalmar, known today as the Old Town, lies right next to Kalmar Castle. It still has many well-preserved 18th- and 19th-century buildings and is an inviting cultural and historical quarter.

This entire area of the town was devastated by fire in 1647, after which the city council decided to move the center to the island of Kvarnholmen, where it stands today.

The population followed slowly, after much pressure, and the wealthier citizens gradually began to build summer houses on the land where the medieval city once was. With its winding alleys and little old houses, the Old Town provides a real impression of Kalmar in earlier times.
