[http:\\ Västerås] is a (after Swedish standards) a large city, with about 130.000 inhabitants, which makes it the sixth largest city of Sweden. Västerås is also one of Sweden's oldest cities, dating back to the end of the 1200's.

Today Västerås is a modern industrial city, but it has some places really worth while to visit. And that's what this page will be about! So I hope you will enjoy reading it and maybe I can inspire you to visit the city and surrounding areas some day :-)

Västerås had been an established market site since the time of the Vikings. During the Viking times the name of the city was Västra (west) Aros (river delta) and has now evolved to the name Västerås.
