Laholm is a locality and the seat of Laholm Municipality, Halland County, Sweden, with 6,150 inhabitants in 2010.Laholm is, despite its small population, for historical reasons often still referred to as a city. Statistics Sweden, however, only counts localities with more than 10,000 inhabitants as cities.Geographically the town is located at the estuary of the river Lagan in the Bay of Laholm.HistoryLaholm is one of Sweden's oldest cities, and it is the oldest city in the province of Halland. The first charter was granted in the 13th century, in what was then Danish territory. The church was founded in 1225. During the wars between Sweden and Denmark in the 16th and 17th century, Laholm was burnt down several times. In 1645, when Halland became a part Sweden, the town had 330 inhabitants, growing to about 866 about hundred years later. In the middle of the 19th century the population reached the 1,000 mark, doubled in the early 20th century and reaching 3,000 around 1950. The local government reform of 1971 made the town the seat of Laholm Municipality which has over 25,000 inhabitants.Of interest is still the old street structure, intact from medieval times and the Laholm church.
