Welcome to Gävle
Gävle has had really bad luck with fires. The city has suffered numerous city fires. In 1603, 1645, 1669, 1727, 1776 and 1869. These days, it's the burning of the Christmas straw goat that is a famous tradition. The Central station was built in 1877 and to the best of our knowledge, has never caught fire, as luck has it. Fingers crossed.
