Thank you to 🔷 @angelikaulfvin 🔷for this beautiful view in Sölsburg. Love the color palette. My family is Swedish and I hope to one day visit.

Located on the southeastern tip of Sweden, the port town of Sölvesborg was founded in the 12th century, between the mountain Ryssberget and the bay to the east (Sölvesborgsviken), but the city itself has grown up around the church, the monastery and later on the castle. The oldest part of the church of Saint Nicholas is from the 12th century. In the 14th century, the church formed part of a Carmelite convent.  In 1564 Sölvesborg took over the city charter of Elleholm.

The origin of the name Sölvesborg is unclear, but is believed to come from the founder of the castle, Sölfwitz or Sölvitz. The name thus means the castle (Borg) of Sölfwitz. Others claim that the mentioned Sölve might be the Norse Viking King Sölve or Salve.
