About Pellinge

Pellinki is an active archipelago and village community with a variety of services and events. Pellinki has today a firm settlement of close to 250 people, a daycare centre, a shop with post office and pharmacy, a private chapel, an active volunteer fire department and much more that we are proud of. The majority of the population speak Swedish (hence the name ”Pellinge” and ”Skärgårdsjul” in Swedish).

It is an insular community, which goes back in history in areas such as fishing and boat building. The sea has been a major employer through out time for the population on the islands, and it has also been an important source of inspiration for both writers as artists.
