Eksjö is one of Sweden’s best-preserved wooden towns, with architecture and monuments spanning more than four centuries. Eksjö has existed as a town since the 15th century but was burnt to the ground in the mid-16th century. Most of the buildings you see now in the picturesque town centre – Gamla stan – were constructed after the town had been ravaged by fire, and since then Eksjö has largely been spared major fires. This means many of the present-day houses date from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
