Nora became a town in 1643 and was a centre for commerce in iron and grain. The wooden town is intact, the streets conform to the classic grid pattern and many buildings and yards look the way they did in the 18th and 19th centuries. The town is carefully preserved and full of exciting details, such as cobblestone streets, window mirrors and pleasant yards with beautiful doorways. The well-preserved cultural environment and uniqe atmosphere makes Nora a member of "Three wooden towns" together with Eksjö and Hjo.
Learn more about Nora's history through a town tour on your own. With the help of a town tour folder, avaible at the tourist office, you can explore the town and learn more about houses and yards.
