./on&opino-(299 ft.),one of the oldest towns in Sweden, repeatedly
burned down, but rebuilt since 1835, has 23,800 inhab. and im¬
portant factories, and is the capital of a province and seat of an
appeal-court ('Gota Hofratt'). It lies at the S. end of Lake Vettern,
between it and the smallerlakes Munksjb and Rocksjb. Large suburbs
have been built since 1875, E. and W. of the older quarters. The
cheerful town, the vast expanse of Lake Vettern, connected with
the Munksjo by a canal, the canal-steamers, and the hills to the
S., all combine to form a beautiful picture.
Close to the State Railway Station (PL C, D, 1), begins the
Skol-Park, which extends S.E. to the Munksjo, containing a bust
of Rydberg, the poet (p. lviii), and a fountain by Molin. To the W,
is the Almdnna Laroverk (PL 2), or grammar-school; to the S. the
Landshbfdings-Residens (PL 1), or house of the provincial governor.
The cross-streets lead to the Sophia-Kyrka (PI. 4), designed by
Zettervall (1888). To the N. of it, nearly opposite, at Fabriks-
Gata 5, is the small museum of the Norra Smctlands Fornminnes-
Fbrening (antiquarian society).
