Ystad is a Swedish town in the province of Skåne in southern Sweden. The earliest recorded history of Ystad dates back to the 12th century when fishing families began to settle at the mouth of the river Vassa, near where the Tourist Office is today. Herring fishing became the main source of trade. No other city in Scandinavia and few cities in Europe can boast such a complete and 'living' picture of bygone days as Ystad. Many of the 300 half-timbered houses date back as far as the 16th century. The Ystad Archaeological Society was formed in 1907 when the monastery was saved for coming generations. In 1936, Ystad arranged Fritiden (Recreation), a much talked about event all over the world. The town art gallery, Konstmuseum, was built as were playgrounds and cycle paths. Half-timbered Town became Recreation Town! In the middle of the 20th century ferries started to run from Ystad to Bornholm and Swinoujscie.
