Bräcke Municipality

Central [[Bräcke Bräcke Municipality () is a municipality in Jämtland County in northern Sweden. Its seat is located in Bräcke.

The present municipality was formed in 1974 when "old" Bräcke Municipality was amalgamated with Kälarne and Revsund. The three former municipalities had been created in 1952. The number of original entities (as of 1863) were six. Due to the declining population in the area further amalgamations have been proposed, but rejected.

One of the most famous people coming from Bräcke Municipality is the former middle distance runner and world record holder Gunder Hägg, who was born in the village Albacken outside of the town Bräcke. Provided by Wikipedia
