Sigtuna’s history is Sweden’s history. It’s the country’s first town and the birthplace of the nation. During the past millennium, international imprints and artifacts have added to this history. Many of Sweden’s “firsts” can be found here. Our history is important, but even more important is our tradition of thinking outside the box. We want to look towards the future and dare to be first. Therefore, we want to welcome you to our new brand: Sigtuna – where Sweden begins.
