The only Swedish city both founded and chartered in the 18th Century, established in 1786. It was, and remains, the only city in the Jamtland area, most of which is wilderness. This fact gives Ostersund the contradictive reputation of being both modern and a lonely outback city.
It is known for its sightings of the Northern Lights, its seperation for other metropolitan areas, and its beautiful surrounding lake and forestland.
