Varvsholmen (the shipyard holm), situated in central Kalmar was used for shipyard activities already in the 17th century, but those activities ended in the 1980's. Kalmar municipality began the development of Varvsholmen at the end of the 1990's by creating a mixture of housing and businesses. Varvsholmen has now become a new town district in central Kalmar. Today, Varvsholmen consists of a mixture of homogenous modern buildings and memories of an earlier era such as a slipway, some workshop buildings, the shipyard office and a couple of cranes that connect to times gone by.
