Geography[eedit | eedit soorce]

Geographically it is situatit bi the wastren shore o Lake Vättern. The lairge an fish-rich watters hae been the main influence on the industry. The lairgest rivulet intersectin the municipality frae Vättern is the Hjo River. Pairts o it hae been made a natur reserve. Pairtly this is due tae the salmon (Salmo trutta) an the grayling (Thymallus thymallus) that occur natural in the rivulet, but hae haed haurd times due tae dams.
