Once a pre-Viking trading post on the island of Härnön, Härnösand was burned to the ground three times in the 1700s: once when drunken churchgoers set the place on fire by accident, once by schoolboy pranksters, and once when Russian Cossacks flattened it in 1721. Härnösand’s Storatorget (main square) is lined with attractive, neoclassical, 18th-century buildings, and its pretty harbour fills up with yachts in July when Härnösand celebrates summer with its Stadfest.
