Frederikshavn is a Danish town in Frederikshavn municipality, Region Nordjylland, on the northeast coast of the Jutland peninsula in northern Denmark. Its name translates to "Frederik's harbour". It was originally named Fladstrand.The town has a population of 23,501(1 January 2017), and is an important traffic portal with its ferry connections to Gothenburg in Sweden and Oslo in Norway. The town is well known for fishing, and its fishing and industrial harbours.Frederikshavn's oldest building, Fiskerklyngen, is originally from the mid-16th century, but the houses now there are from 18th - 19th centuries.HistoryFrederikshavn was originally called Fladstrand, until 1818 when it received status as a merchant town under the name of Frederikshavn, after King Frederik VI.Due to its advantageous proximity to the entrance to the Baltic Sea, Frederikshavn has historically been a naval base of some strategic importance. Peter Tordenskjold barricaded himself here in the fortress that German troops had already built in the 17th century. During the Great Northern War the Battle of Fladstrand was fought in the nearby sea between Swedish and Danish naval forces.
