Gavle Overview

Gävle is a nice size Swedish town located north of Stockholm and about a one hour train ride away. There are not a lot of tourist attractions in Gävle, just a very nice town center with shops of all kinds, a very nice park, and the old historical section of town. If you want to see what living in suburban Sweden is really like, this is a nice place to visit.
Located at the mouth of the river Dal.
The city is one of the oldest in northern Sweden, it received city status in 1446.
