This is a list of cities and market towns in Sweden, that held their privileges (Stadsprivilegium) by Royal charter or by being established since ancient times. The cities lost their function as administrative entities in 1971, when they were replaced by the unitary authorities, which became the Municipalities of Sweden. The cities retains some symbolic tokens of their former liberties such as using a mural crown in their coats of arms. Apart from the chartered cities and market towns there are also Swedish towns that never held any special distinction.
