"Typical Swedish countryside town" Värnamo by Sjalen

No, I have no photos as I never envisaged making a Vaernamo page in 1994, nor during any of my earlier visits :))) But now I'm making one to give those of you who might pass by an idea of what it is like. This is since I've been here quite a few times on stops between childhood Gothenburg and our family cottage in this province.
I have to say this must be one of the most boring destinations in Sweden as towns go. There is nothing going on and not much to see BUT Vaernamo to some extent makes up for this by having a pretty countryside with lots of heritage hidden in various villages. This is why summertime is definately the best time to visit to make sure opening hours allow you to see things. In spring, you might also otherwise be caught up in floods following the snow melting, as there is a river running through town which gets a lot of melting water from the more high level source area. This even leads to road closures now and again after snowy winters.
If you're interested in architecture and/or interior design, DO go here to see the famous 1950s hotel (see hotel tip). The whole area is part of the south Swedish "furniture district" so there is lots to shop in that direction should you bring a trailer or have enough money to ship it home...
