Askersund

Askersund

The town Askersund traces its origin from the 14th century. In 1643 it was significant enough to received its charter as one of the cities in Sweden. Despite its small size (3,887 inhabitants in 2010) Askersund is for historical reasons normally still referred to as a city, although Statistics Sweden nowadays defines a city as a locality with more than 10,000 inhabitants.
