Ystad Guide

The town of Ystad is located in Skane County in the south west of Sweden. The town's origins date back to the 11th century when the mouth of the River Vassa was settled by families fishing for herring which was became the settlement's main source of income. It was another several centuries before the town was mentioned again when in 1244, a record was made of King Eric's visit to the town with his brother Abel. Shortly after the King's visit a Franciscan Monastery, Grabrodraklostret, was founded in 1267 and later Ystad joined the Hanseatic League in the 14th century. Of particular interest to visitors to the town is one of Sweden's best preserved medieval monasteries, the Greyfriars Abbey. There is also a medieval church in the town, the Church of the Virgin Mary (Mariakyrkan). Both buildings were influences by Gothic Hansa architecture and are excellent examples of Brick Gothic architecture in Sweden.

Ystad today is a busy ferry port, administrative centre and tourist attraction spurred on perhaps because of the town's association with the fictional police officer Kurt Wallender. The creation of Henning Mankell, Wallender is mainly set in Ystad and the surrounding area. The town's ferry port has services to the Danish island of Bornholm and to Swinoujscie (formerly Swinemünde), in Poland.
