Situated on the west coast
of Sweden, the City of Gothenburg was founded in 1621 by King Gustavus
Adolphus of Sweden. It lies by the sea at the mouth of Göta Älv—the
river running through the city—and is the largest seaport in the Nordic
Gothenburg is home to many
students, as the city includes both the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers
University of Technology. Volvo Cars was founded in Gothenburg in 1927.
The city is a major centre in Sweden for sports and home to the celebrated

Apart from mellifluous ABBA,
mischievous Pipi Longstocking and peace-loving Alfred Nobel, Sweden means
much more and visiting it is a delightful experience of the plethora of
its forested mountains, fiord and island-strewn seas, ancient cities, weird
villages and refined palaces. Being the biggest of the Nordic countries
in Northern Europe, it offers unforgettable views in all of its three regions
- The Northern, Central and Southern.
|The best start of exploring
the itinerary is, undoubtedly, the Central part with the magnificent capital
Stockholm. The city's location is on 14 islands and numerous bridges at
the meeting point of Lake Mälaren and The Baltic sea has generated
logical comparisons to Venice and Amsterdam. The oldest area of the city
is The Old Town and the small island of Riddarholmen with the cluster of
the Royal Palace - the official residence in the Roman style architecture
and house of the State Apartments - The Crown Jewels, The Hall of State
and chapel Royal Armory and Palace museum. For those interested in the
royal family's life there are two other palaces to visit - the permanent
residence - Drottningholm Palace near Stockholm, also considered The North
Versailles and the summer residence - Solliden Palace on Öland Island
to the east coastline of the country.
Above the narrow houses along
the cobbled streets rise three impressive churches - two from 13thC - Storkyrkan
and Riddarholm and one German church with unique Baroque atmosphere.
Another highlight is The
City Hall, famous for the Nobel Banquet, annually held on 10 December.
It is perched on the edge of Lake Mälaren and its tower offers a breath-taking
panoramic view. A benefit of a bus ride will be a tour of the attractive
surroundings of Stockholm, most of which are on The UNESCO's world heritage
list - Skogskyrkogården (the Woodland Cemetery), Drottningholm Palace
and the remains of the Viking settlement. Equally exciting is a stroll
in the 18thC parks - Hagaparken, Albano and Frescati as well as the unique
park-museum with sculptures Millesgården.
|After Stockholm, you have
to decide which direction to follow. If it is the North, you will pass
Falun - a UNESCO heritage list site, home of the Dalecarlian horse breed,
and the birthplace of the painter Carl Larsson and enjoy the typical Swedish
scenery of Darna with the eternally-blue Lake Siljan and towns like Rattvik,
Leksand and Mora renowned for folklore festivals and boat tours.
From Southern Sweden, where
the majority of the population lives you should visit Gothenburg
/Goteborg - the second biggest city with its right-angle crossing
streets and canals. The must-see sights are The City Museum, which is actually
the oldest building in Nordstaden Kronhuset area, Kronhusbodarna arts,
craft workshop center, and the The Botanical gardens. The other city of
interest is Malmo - the third biggest city and the squares series - The
Big, The Small, The Gustav Adolf and David Hall, parks and adjacent beaches.
For 20 minutes, you can pass the Öresund bridge and visit Copenhagen.
On the western coast are also the port Helsingborg, the historic University
City Lund. Still to the south is the marvelous district of Österlen
with undulating landscape, beaches and orchards and the farming and field
area of Skåne with hills and beaches.
