Transport

Kumla is linked with several roads, including the highway E20 that is passing just west of the locality. The E20 is the fastest route to both Gothenburg and Stockholm, which Kumla is situated relatively close to the middle between the two largest Swedish cities. E20 passes Orebro as well, but there are several routes which go to the larger neighbour city from Kumla. The roads 51 (from Norrkoping) and 52 (from Nykoping) also pass through Kumla.

Kumla also has a train station on the Stockholm-Gothenburg route driven by SJ.

Today

Today the industry is dominated by the manufacturing of jam at BOB industries, and communication systems at an Ericsson industry.

Notability

Today the name Kumla is renowned for its prison ("the Kumla Institution", or Kumlaanstalten, commonly known as The Bunker), which is the largest prison in the country. Opened in 1965, it can currently allow 333 inmates, with a similarly large staff, and is designated for "difficult" inmates and for those at the start of a life-term sentence. It is one of three Swedish prisons housing the most notorious and dangerous inmates.

Formula 1 driver Marcus Ericsson was born in the town.

Geography

Kumla Beautiful Landscapes of Kumla

Kumla is situated 15 kilometres south of neighbour city Orebro, and is connected to its much larger neighbour with train and bus commuting. Kumla is unusual in terms of municipality seats in Svealand in that there is no connection to any kind of waterway in the center of the town. However, three of the four biggest lakes in the country are within an hours drive from the town. It is also an unusually flat town, since it is situated in the middle of the so-called Narke Plain. There is also a very agrarian landscape surrounding Kumla.
