Skellefteå: one of The Worlds Greatest Places 2022

TIME has named Skellefteå as one of The Worlds 50 Greatest Places 2022. But how did Skellefteå end up on that list, and to top it of, the only Swedish town on there?

Well, they asked their wide international network of correspondents which places in the world offer new and exciting experiences. Skellefteå qualified with the summary "Nordic warmth".

They mention the warmth in the form of the wood in Sara Kulturhus, Bryggargatan with its Michelin-awarded food, but also the literal heat that melts the snow from the sidewalks in the city center during the winter. They also pay tribute to our focus on sustainability with, among other things, electric buses and Northvolt, and the opportunity to live modern in close proximity to nature.
