When Norway broke away from the union with Sweden in 1905, a century of peace was under threat. The conflict was solved during negotiations held in Karlstad. In September 1905 both parties agreed to go to their separate ways peacefully. In the centre of the city you also can visit the Cathedral or The Town square and The Peace Monument.
