The city centre is cosy and compact, and has a zigzagshaped moat winding through it. If you like fish and seafood, you’ve come to the right place. Gothenburg has a rich restaurant and cafe scene, with Saluhallen covered market and Feskekörka fish market being two of the city’s most beloved landmarks. Its location by the sea not only influences the range of food on offer – its proximity to the archipelago also provides opportunities for many pleasant excursions. Go on a day trip on a boat or stay the night on one of the islands. Here, you can enjoy pleasant bathing from the rocks, walks along the horizon, or a crab fishing trip. Gothenburg also has a thriving range of shops, and its cultural life includes everything from museums to opera, theatre and music. Photography: Marie Ullnert Photography: Per Pixel Petersson
