Stumholmen is today a civil part of Karlskrona, but for 300 years it was heavily controlled by the navy. It was for long a material harbour with different kind of factories. Many older buildings, from 1700s to 1950s, are preserved here, since it escaped the big fire in 1790. There are also 2 art museums on the island!
