Culture and leisure


Ask someone from Skellefteå what quality of life means. You'll probably hear a description of their own well-being. And confirmation that Skellefteå is a good place to grow in.


The City Library is a full-service library at Viktoriaplatsen in central Skellefteå. A computerised catalogue system makes every booktitle accessible. Books can also be borrowed from rural branches and our bookmobile.

Associations and societies

Skellefteå has many associations and societies, around 1 000. Of the 600 entitled to grants, over 200 are sports clubs and around 100 are cultural societies. Many larger centres are run by the associations, e.g. riding schools and sports arenas.

Sports and exercise

The council has eight swimming baths, three sports halls and around 15 sports arenas (including association-run arenas there are many times this number). In fact we have more ski and running tracks than anywhere else in the country. Many sports clubs are among the national elite.


Skellefteå Museum at Nordanå has been showing exhibits since 1882. The museum's maritime exhibition is in Stackgrönnans Boat Museum and at Bergrum Boliden you can see mining history from varying perspectives (both are summer-open museums).
