Trosa stads Church


Trosa was known as a town in the 14th century. In the 15th century it was an important site for merchancy, and received its city privileges in 1454 by King Charles VIII of Sweden. Due to post-glacial rebound, the city center was moved in the early 17th century, to its present location by the estuary of the Trosa River.
The city was burnt down and plundered by Russians in 1719 during the Russian Pillage of 1719-1721 and was repeatedly attacked during the Great Northern War, but the local church and poor-house was spared at every occasion.
Today Trosa is one of the top four wealthiest communities in Sweden and the general number of people living in Trosa goes up with 131% during the summer months of June–August because of the high ratio of summer residences.
