Welcome to the Swedish National Archives

The Swedish National Archives are one of Sweden´s oldest public authorities, 400 years old. We collect and preserve records from government, public bodies, organisations  and individuals from the Middle Ages onwards. One of our missions is to make this cultural heritage available. We have archives in several locations in Sweden.
