Welcome to Västervik


Harried by the Danes in its early years, the town bloomed into a major shipbuilding centre between the 17th and 19th centuries. Today, it's a popular domestic holiday destination and an absolute delight if you can time your visit to that sweet spot either side of the Swedish school holidays when the weather is warm and the crowds are at bay.

In mid-July, Västervik welcomes thousands of excited Swedes for one of the nation's best-known song festivals.
