Did you know that Uddevalla has switched nationality more often than any other Swedish city? No less than seven times! Did you know that it was in the town square of Uddevalla that Sweden transformed from autocracy to democracy? This happened in december 1718, while the corpse of king Charles
XII was embalmed in a house at the square. And did you know that Uddevalla was the country's second largest port - after Stockholm - during the 18th century? That period is known as the Golden Age of Uddevalla. Did you know the city is known as Kôrpehôla, meaning the "Raven's Hole"
? A term of endearment according to some, a derogatory nickname according to others.
