In only 50 years Stenungsund has changed from a quiet summer resort into a regional business centre and the population today is four times what it used to be. It's also the centre of Swedish petro-chemical industry - high tech industry and good living.
In terms of the average age of its inhabitants, Stenungsund is one of Sweden's youngest municipalities; it is also a tightly knit community - most people live not more than a few minutes walking or cycling distance from the centre.

Stenungsund has a fantastic environment for outdoor life, you will find the archipelago and salt water in the west and woods and fresh water lakes in the east.
