Gothenburg
Sweden’s second-largest city celebrates the wonders of the land and the sea. Educate yourself at the Museum of World Culture, slip into the Feskekôrka fish market for some slippery wares or treat your ears to an evening at the Gothenburg Opera. Metalheads who prefer something a little heavier are in luck—every summer, Gothenburg plays host to the Metaltown Festival, two days of head-banging glory.

The cultivated part occupies 40 acres and holds about 12 000 species. It is a botanical garden with a strong emphasis on horticulture and the garden is divided into different sections linked by lawns with fine trees and shrubs. You will find a kitchen garden, a herb garden, perennial and annual borders, a Japanese glade, a rhododendron valley and a stunning rock garden with a waterfall. In the bulb garden you find species that are not grown anywhere else. The Greenhouses have more than 4 000 species including a large collection of orchids and carnivorous plants. The Eastern Island tree, extinct in its natural locality, is preserved here. The garden is bordering a nature reserve where also the arboretum is located. less
