Sweden Things to Do: 422 reviews and 839 photos


Known as Gothenburg in English, Göteborg is Sweden's second largest city and has the biggest port in Scandinavia. As such, there is always some event or other going on here and it is one of the easiest cities for being an expat in since the links to Britain are strong and people love to practice their English. It is a very outdoors type of place with not only a gorgeous archipelago, easy to reach, but also lots of parks and green areas which people love even if the weather here is often rainier than on the East coast. One of Scandinavia's biggest and best amusement parks, Liseberg, can be found here and there are also lots of sports events with several top league Swedish football and handball teams as well as a hockey team. On the more cultural side, the art museum is famous as is the Museum of World Culture and the many maritime heritages of course. People here are a tad too proud of themselves but still very likeable and they do have a lot to be proud of.
