WELCOME TO KALMAR....

KALMAR is one of the oldest towns in SWEDEN and to be true: it once was the 3rd biggest town in the country!

Walking here you will find traces of all "times" : history is around each and every corner , everything from the stone age till the times of great power later on...

Have a walk through the cobbled streets in the old town and enjoy it all!

Of course you CAN'T forget the wonderful KALMAR SLOTT (SEE PHOTOGRAPH) which is open to the public!
More about this CASTLE in the TIPS...

This CASTLE has a history that goes back 800 years in time , imagine that!!
Today it is a living RENAISSANCE PALACE with room for both: feasts and conferences.

The MEDIEVAL VILLAGE, SALVE , situated close to the exit of the E22 motorway, offers the visitor exciting and enchanting entertainment during the summer period.

In the COUNTY MUSEUM you will find the biggest treasure of goldcoins in SWEDEN...see it with all the other FINDINGS from the MAN-OF-WAR KRONAN......see TIPS...

And when evening arrives the fun isn't over yet....no, it starts!
KVARNHOLMEN has a seething life in PUBS & RESTAURANTS and in summertime we offer entertainment both at the LARMTORGET and in the STADSPARKEN......

This KALMAR really is a pleasantly lively, busy town, with gems to discover everywhere and which town can be enjoyed for days on end......

    Fabulous castle...but I am quite partial to those little historic houses along the cobbled street. Very sweet.

    Everything seemed to be perfect after reading your sentences,seeing pictures of different regions of sweden in your swedish travel page. But how did you understand that they are friendly? by looking their museums,by travelling around their streets?

    What a wonderful place. You introduced it on so enticing way. I like twin sisters' former house.
