Haparanda had a population of 4,856 in 2010, of out of a municipal total of 10,200 inhabitants.Haparanda is, despite its small population, for historical reasons often still referred to as a city.

Haparanda is located at the northerly extreme of the Swedish coastline, and far removed from large cities. Its summers are very mild for a coastal location so far north, and winters are normally not extremely cold in spite of the relative proximity to the Arctic Circle.The municipality itself, on the other hand, uses the term Haparanda stad not only for the town itself, but for its whole territory . At 24° 8' E, Haparanda is Sweden's easternmost settlement.HistoryWhen Sweden ceded Finland to Russia in 1809, the Finnish–Swedish border was drawn along the Rivers Tornio and Muonio.
