Gothenburg is one of my favorite cities in Europe. Regarding Scandinavia, I would rank the top 5 Nordic cities like so:
1. Copenhagen, Denmark
2. Gothenburg, Sweden
3. Tromsö, Norway
4. Turku, Finland
5. Uppsala, Sweden.
Here is a travel guide book video trailer for Gothenburg:
My favorite places in Gothenburg:
– Haga. A lovely old neighborhood.
– Slottsskogen. A large park in the outskirts of city center. Features a small zoo.
– The canals. Gothenburg was originally protected by walls and canals. The walls have disappeared but the canals still circle the old city center.
The long coast in the South-West Sweden is a beautiful and historically rich destination where Swedes like to spend their summer vacations. The archipelago has a lot to offer: the sea, the sun, sailing, fishing, golfing, cycling, hiking, and exploring historical castles and fortresses. The city of Gothenburg is the central place on the West Coast.
