Faerostadia, Färiestaden or Färjestaden has been an important port from the late 14th century until the inauguration of Ölandsbron (the Öland Bridg) on 30 September 1972. The port and communication around the port have over time shaped the development of the urban area. In the 17th century, with the wars ongoing around Öland, Kråkeskär's fortification was built to protect shipping in Kalmarsund and Färiestadens harbor. Remains of the fort and remains from the time when Färjestaden had a courthouse can still be seen in the urban area.
During summer you can take the bicycle ferry to Kalmar.
