Historical Maps

We have one of the world’s largest map treasures and we would like to share it with you.

We have more than a million historical maps and documents extending as far back as 17th century. These maps cover large parts of Sweden and in many cases are so well made and richly decorated that it's tempting to call them works of art. Not surprisingly, our historical maps are popular to give away as gifts.

There is no charge to view the maps and we promise that you will find something interesting to look at.
