Växjö is believed to be constructed from the words väg (“road”) and sjö (“lake”), meaning the road over the frozen lake that farmers used in the winter to get to the marketplace which later became the city of Växjö. Växjö is situated in the center of the historical landscape of Småland in the south of Sweden. Växjö is the main town of the municipality and the provincial capital. Started as a medieval bishop’s seat with a medieval cathedral, Växjö developed to an economic and cultural center over the centuries. Växjö calls itself “The Greenest City in Europe”. It has its foundation in a long history of commitment to environmental issues, and ambitious goals for a green future.
