In the spring, not only nature awakens, but also the endless desire to travel and visit places not yet seen. This spring we invite you to visit countries that take pride in not only great cities but also wonderful wonders of nature. Sweden and Denmark are great choices for spring travel, and the best part is that you can visit them in one trip, as they are only a few kilometers away via the Oresund Bridge.
Gothenburg, the capital of western Sweden, is a great place to escape from your routine. Breathtaking canals, paved streets of The Hague, and plenty of green parks and green spaces. History lovers will find interesting museums, and gastronomy lovers will find plenty of restaurants, including 7 which are rated Michelin stars.
Take the opportunity to visit the archipelago also known as the Gothenburg Archipelago. Described in the old Viking sagas, the islands were fought by Vikings for honor or property, and are now a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of nature.
The only city on Gotland Island. It is almost the best preserved medieval city in Scandinavia and was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List at the end of the last century. The most prominent object of this city is the 3.4 km long defensive wall that surrounds the remains of the old town and the church.
The historical footprint on this island is definitely not the only thing the city has to offer. You will also find many restaurants, some of which are not only the best on the island but throughout Sweden, and the nightlife that revives in the summer can challenge even the country's capital.
In addition to historic landmarks and amazing restaurants, Gotland is also worth a visit for its scenery. It is highly recommended to take a stroll in early June, when artists set up open workshops and capture the beauty of the island on a daily basis.
Europe's fifth largest lake, Vättern, is known for breeding as many as 31 species of fish. Even the most demanding fisherman will find the right catch here. Spring is a great time for fishing on this lake. Cozy cabins on the shore of the lake will provide comfort, so you only have to make arrangements for the best and biggest catches.
And if you still can't catch the fish, be sure to visit the majestic Renaissance Vadstena Castle on the shore of the lake. In addition to museums and exhibitions that illustrate life, the castle also houses the smallest opera house in Sweden. In summer, classical and pop concerts are held in the castle grounds.

The stadium is just 4 kilometers from the main train station, making it easily accessible even on foot.
