Welcome to Hudiksvall
Hudiksvall is one plucky little town. Not only has it survived 10 major fires that left it in piles of ashes, but it also weathered a Russian rampage in 1721 – check out the cannonball pockmarks on Jacobs Kyrka just southwest of the town centre. Hudiksvall's cute harbour, surrounded by red wooden fishermen’s storehouses (Möljen), has a sedate appeal, as does the grander Fiskarstan district, further along Hamngatan. 'Fishermen’s Town' consists of partly preserved, elegantly wood-panelled merchants’ yards and winter dwellings of local fishermen, dating back to the early 19th century. Hudiksvall is a pleasant little place to hang out and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of this part of the Bothnian Coast.
