Sölvesborg is a place ( Tatort ) in the Swedish province of Blekinge län and the historical province of Blekinge . It is the capital of the municipality of the same name .

The Ljungaviken residential area in Sölvesborg shows traces of 8,000 years of use. Iron Age traces can be found northeast in the Skebbas Rör burial ground .

The origins of the city go back to the Middle Ages . The only remaining building from this period is the Nikolaikirche, built around 1300. A large part of the city center still reflects the medieval course of the street. In the middle of the 19th century Sölvesborg experienced an upswing as the center of a region with many distilleries .

In Sölvesborg there is also a rune stone from the 6th century, the Stentoften stone . His inscription translates as follows: “Hådulf gave the residents of Nihua and the residents of Nihua a good year.” The rest is incomprehensible. An addition reads: “I, master of the runes, carved powerful runes here. Forever afflicted with suffering, death who destroys this monument should fall victim to. "

In summer Sölvesborg is a tourist magnet. In addition to the appealing environment, various festivals are responsible for this, for example Killebom with its medieval market and other cultural performances or the Sweden Rock Festival .
