A beautiful old Swedish city, known for its fascinating historic buildings and attractions, including an abbey and a castle.

Vadstena is a locality in Östergötland County, Sweden. Despite its small population, Vadstena is, for historical reasons, still referred to as a city. The buildings in the city centre date mainly from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The old town is well preserved and the streets have not changed much over the centuries. The Town Hall is Sweden's oldest, dating back to the early 15th century. Notable is the main street (Storgatan) where all the shops are gathered, as they would have been during the Middle Ages. Vadstena also preserves elements of more recent history in the museum of the Vadstena-Fågelsta narrow gauge railway (Wadstena Fogelsta Järnväg).
