The city of Stromstad is located in the Stromstad Municipality, Vastra Gotaland in Sweden. The city has a small population of around 6,500 but due to historical reasons it is still classed as a city. Located by the mouth of the River Stromsan, the city can trace its origins back to the 1500's where timber was being transported along the river to be sold to waiting ships. Over time, the city became an important centre of shipping and then in the second half of the 18th century the city really prospered during the great herring fishing era. At the same time the foundations were laid for what was later to become the main symbol of Stromstad; the spa resort Stromstad.
The oldest part of the city is Bukten where terraced houses can be found offering great views of the harbour and of the boats. These houses were constructed at the end of the 18th century and during the whole of the 19th century. Stromstad's only remaining cobbled street is also in Bukten and according to local legend, the women who lived in the houses along the street carried all the stones there themselves.
From the city's port, ferry's can be taken to Sandefjord with a crossing time of around 2 hours and 30 minutes.
