Exploring Bohuslän

Bohuslän is located along the Swedish west coast and is the westernmost province of Sweden. It borders Norway in the West, with Olso close by. The province was for a long time part of Norway and later Denmark. Bohuslän was ceded to Sweden in the peace treaty of Roskilde in 1658. At this time there were only three towns in the Province – Kungsälv, Marstrand, and Uddevalla. Since have both Söderköping and Lysekil been given town privileges. During the 20th century parts of Gothenburg were also incorporated into Bohuslän.

The province of Bohuslän is today a part of the Västra Götaland County. It has a population of around 307.000 inhabitants. The coat of arms depicts a red tower, a symbol for the Bohus Fortress, together with a blue sword and a blue lion.
