Sweden - Götaland


Gothenburg, second city of Sweden with 450000 inhabitants take advantages from its opening on the ocean and is located at equal distance between the principal Scandinavian city, namely Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen. That makes it the first Scandinavian harbour. Gothenburg was built on its current site by Gustav II Adolf in 1619. It is now a very dynamic and modern city.
