Hjo, Sweden 2015
Hjo Harbor 2015
Hjo is a small picturesque Swedish town on the western shores of Sweden’s second largest lake, Lake Vättern. The town, which dates back to the early 1400s, is one of the only original Swedish “wooden cities” that remains largely intact, complete with cobbled streets on the town square. While historically operating primarily as a fishing village and later a spa town, it has now become a popular summer destination for those wishing to experience the slower, more idyllic ambiance of “old” Sweden.
