Nykoping Airport Mini Guide
Nykoping is a fascinating part of south eastern Sweden. Many people who arrive at its airport simply hire a car and drive to Stockholm
, the main destination. Others have realised the charms of the area and stay locally in beautiful coastal cottages, spending their time driving through the dramatic scenery of the coast or finding out about the unusual history of Nykoping itself.
The city is over 4,000 years old and was once a capital of a small kingdom in the country. Nykoping Fortress was built in the 14th century becoming the most impregnable fortress in the country. Later, a legend tells of a king who, having been betrayed by his brothers, invited them to a banquet, ostensibly to give his forgiveness, only to show them the delicious food and throw them both into the dungeon where they starved to death.
The city has been burnt to the ground twice before appearing in its present form in the 18th century. The city is now an industrial centre which began with the opening of a milk churn factory in the 19th century. Today, if you hire a car, interesting places to visit include the pretty Nykoping Castle or the countryside outside of the city.

- Nykoping Airport is already operating at over capacity and plans have yet to begin on expanding it, leading to overcrowding at peak times. Be aware that at such times, managing children and luggage may not be easy, so allow extra time.
