Jönköping is a city in southern Sweden with 61,559 inhabitants . Jönköping is situated by the southern end of Sweden's second largest lake, Vättern. The original town Jönköping has grown together with twin city Huskvarna and suburb Norrahammar-Hovslätt, forming a contiguous urban area, with 93,662 inhabitants in 2013.The city is the seat of Jönköping Municipality which has a population of 130,798 and is Sweden's 10th populous municipality. Jönköping is also the seat of Jönköping County which has a population of 341 235 . Jönköping is the seat of a district court and a court of appeal as well as the Swedish National Courts Administration. It is the seat of the Swedish Board of Agriculture.HistoryJönköping is an old trading center, since it was on a crossroad for the roads following along the rivers Nissan and Lagan, and the road between the provinces Östergötland and Västergötland. This was rather natural due to the geographical position of the city at the southern end of lake Vättern, which divided the two counties.On 18 May 1284, Jönköping received rights as a City in Sweden as one of the first communities in the country, by King Magnus Ladulås, who largely ruled the nation from Vättern's largest island Visingsö. In the name of the city "Jön-" is derived from a creek, "Junebäcken", which was in the nowadays western part of the city, Talavid. This was the location of the first known settlement in the area. The second part of the name "-köping", as mentioned above, is an old word for a trading center or market place.
