In the 13th century, Kalmar has been known as one of the richest cities in Sweden, thanks to trade with the German merchants.

As a market town it originated in the 12th century, before that, in place of Kalmar there was a settlement, as evidenced by archeological finds of the Stone Age.

The city was formed around the castle of Kalmar. The castle is located on the border with Denmark, and at that time served as an outpost of Sweden.

In 1397, the coronation took place in Kalmar Eric the Pomeranian, which was solemnly proclaimed King of Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
Then the signing of "Kalmar Union". This document, which lasted until 1523, effectively united all the Nordic countries under the auspices of Denmark.
