Uddevalla is an old trade town. It first received its town privileges in 1498. At some point in time it belonged to Norway, Denmark and Sweden, and during its history it was burned down several times, but it has always recovered. Apart from trade, the big source of income was fishing. Since the late 19th century, Uddevalla began to attract new industries and since then Uddevalla has been steadily developing.
