From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Perhaps this category should be renamed "Stad (Sweden)"?

Up to 1970 there were three different types of municipalities of Sweden. Of the 848 municipalities at the end of that year 132 had a formal city status. On New years day 1971 there were only 464 of them left, and they were all of a unitary type, kommun.

The term stad (city or town) is nowadays often used to describe non-administrative localities or urban areas which constituted the former chartered cities.

A few municipalities (among them Stockholm and Gothenburg) have decided to use the term in their names whenever possible. This usage has no legal foundation, but is widely accepted.

Only the settlements included on the list of cities in Sweden belong here. For other towns in Sweden see the category:Cities, towns and villages in Sweden.
