Piteå is a locality and the seat of Piteå Municipality in Norrbotten County, Sweden. The town has 22,913 inhabitants, out of a municipal total of 41,000 in 2008.GeographyPiteå is located at the mouth of the Pite River, at the shore of the Bay of Bothnia. The central part is located on an islet called Häggholmen, which due to post-glacial rebound almost has become a part of the mainland; the land in northern Sweden rises at a rate of up to 9mm per year.Piteå has an attractive archipelago, which is one of the reasons it is a popular place for tourism both in summer and winter. It features a beach resort area that is often labelled "The Riviera of Norrland" (or Sweden), around which there is a spa, a long sandy beach, a restaurant and a golf course. The area is also suitable for fishing and outdoor activities. In the winter, snow activities such as skiing and winter bathing are common.ClimatePiteå has a climate that is classified as subarctic climate (Köppen climate classification Dfc).The warmest months in Piteå are June, July, and August, with high temperatures of 17to. The coldest are December, January, and February, with low temperatures of -22to.HistoryPiteå received its city privileges on May 12, 1621. The town was originally situated slightly north of its current location, in present-day Öjebyn. In July, 1666, the entire town burnt down, and over the following few years it was rebuilt on Häggholmen, a small island which forms the nucleus of present-day Piteå. In 1721, the new town was burnt down by Russian troops, and the only building that remained was the church, which is still standing.
