Boat-houses lined the banks of Gavleån, Lillån, and Islandsån.Until the 18th century the town was built, as was the practice then, around the three most important buildings: the church, the regional palace, and the town hall.The city applied for becoming the European Capital of Culture in 2014.The prison museum of Sweden, the county museum of Gävleborg, and the national railway museum are the three largest museums in the city.In recent years, the city has received a lot of international attention due to its large Yule Goat figure made of straw - the Gävle Goat.The goat is erected in December each year and is often subsequently vandalised, usually by someone setting it on fire.
However, Gävle is far nearer the greater Stockholm region than it is to the other major settlements in Norrland.
Trade from the port of Gävle increased markedly during the 15th century when copper and iron began to be exported from the port.
In order to ensure that all trade was via Stockholm, sailing to foreign ports from Gävle and a few other ports was forbidden.
It is also one of the northernmost cities by significant size in the world with this climate type, since areas north of the 60th parallel for the most part are dominated by various subarctic climate types.
Under the 1961-1990 normals, Gävle's fourth warmest month was just around the isotherm of 10 °C (50 °F) to not be classified as subarctic, but temperatures did go up sufficiently to be clear humid continental since.
This led to an increase in trade, which in turn led to an increase in buildings, industrial developments, trade and shipping.
