Bollnäs is a Swedish locality and the seat of Bollnäs Municipality, in Gävleborg County, Sweden. It had 12,842 inhabitants in 2010.HistoryThe first recording of Bollnäs in writing is from 1312 when a vicar named Ingemund referred to it as Baldenaes, meaning "the large isthmus," referring to the isthmus into a nearby lake. Before becoming known as Bollnäs, its name was Bro By (lit. Bridge Village).Bollnäs has a station along the Northern Railline, which it was connected to in 1878. The town became a main base for further northern expansion of the railroad. In 1884, it became a primary maintenance and repair workshop for the railroad. The railroad was the largest employer in Bollnäs for the greater part of the 20th century, until the 1990s when it was closed due to its location being no longer optimal. Bollnäs became a city in 1942, nowadays an honorary title without administrative significance.Bollnäs is twinned with Shepton Mallet, England.SportsBandy is the locality's most popular sport.
