The seaside town of Gothenburg was the hub of Sweden's fishing and international trade in the 1700s. The Feskekôrka indoor fish market, built in the shape of a church, is still the place where you can taste delicacies made from same-day catches, and the fascinating City Museum is located in the former facilities of the East India Company.
The top attractions of today's Gothenburg include its lively cafes, unique museums and proximity to nature. The joyful atmosphere on the Avenyn street in the city centre pulls you in, and the Linnéstaden restaurant district and the old Haga wooden house district charm you with their unique architecture. Maritima is the world's largest floating maritime museum, and in the Universeum science park, you can take a stroll in a rainforest. The Liseberg amusement park and the brand new Göteborg Ferris wheel offer hours of fun for the entire family. The nature of Sweden is presented at its best for travellers who choose to take a boat cruise along the city's canals and visit the archipelago of southern Sweden.
