Kramfors is in Ångermanland.
The city and several outlying villages became the center of lumber and pulp industry in Sweden during late 19th century. As an important industrial center the town saw a boom during the first half of the 20th century but has since then been declining in population and strategic importance. Kramfors is also famous in Swedish labour history, it was in the nearby village of Lunde that military police opened fire upon striking workers, killing five and injuring many more. Even today there is a strong presence of the labour movement.
However, Kramfors and the whole of Ångermanland is also famous for its beautiful nature and Höga Kusten with unique natural scenery featured as a UNESCO World Heritage.
Currently, no passenger trains are available to Kramfors. This will however change in late 2011 when both regional trains and express X2000 trains between Stockholm and Umeå will make stop-overs in Kramfors. As of now, the nearest train station is in Sundsvall, regional buses connect to Kramfors.
