Nyköping

At the end of the road to Skavsta there is the small industrial town of Nyköping, the NYO Skavsta gets its IATA airport code from.

The town itself clearly used to be a major industrial centre, but now it is more of a tourist centre, with the old mills next to the river turned into heritage museums and handcraft shops. Unfortunately I didn't find the river until after dark so didn't get to see it properly, so would like to explore it a little more during daylight.
