History[edit | edit source]

In 1665 large parts of the city including a fortress were damaged in a fire. The same thing happened again in 1719 when Russian troops invaded the city. It was then rebuilt with its current street plan.
Up to 1988 it was known as Nyköpings östra and after 1989 it became known as Nyköpings Alla Helgona.
On Jan. 1, 1989 Helgona parish, was combined with this parish.
Historically Östra församling is the Stadsförsamling for the city of Nyköping.
