Luleå

Luleå is a city on the coast of northern Sweden. The harbour of Luleå Sweden's fifth-largest port, which transports over seven million tons of cargo each year is of particular significance for iron ore. During the winter, sea traffic continues with the assistance of icebreakers;

Luleå was already an important harbour in the 13-15th centuries. The original town was situated where Gammelstad (Old Town) is situated today. The town had to be moved in 1649 to the current site, due to the land elevation that had made the bay too shallow for ships to enter. The Gammelstad Church Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
