A lot to experience on a small island

Historically, Kökar is unique, much due to its strategic situation by the natural deep water route west of Kökar.

Here there are Bronze Age remnants, the ruins of a medieval Franciscan monastery, remnants of fortifications from the world wars, as well as a multitude of exciting stories. The stories tell of people who came here, but also of those who lived here for centuries: the inhabitants of Kökar.

At the local folklore museum you will find their story; the story of those who were both fishermen, farmers, emigrants, teachers and scientists.
