Jönköping is a city in southern Sweden with 103,784 inhabitants (2010). It is the 9th most populous city of Sweden.
Jönköping is situated by the southern end of Sweden’s second largest lake, Vättern. The original town Jönköping has grown together with Huskvarna and Norrahammar forming a contiguous urban area, since 1971 wholly within the same municipality.
Jönköping is known for its matchstick industry 1845-1970. Still today it is an important Swedish logistical center, with many companies’ central warehouses situated there (like IKEA, Electrolux and Husqvarna).
