Perched on the coast of West Sweden and flanked by forest, lakes and the North Sea, Gothenburg may be geographically sprawling but it manages to retain the intimacy of a much smaller city.

Sweden’s second-largest city has moved on from its industrial past to embrace sport (there are three local football teams), a major film festival, multiple music festivals and an ever-growing number of local fashion houses. Gothenburg’s gentrified Haga district, with its Dutch-built canals, cobblestone streets and café culture makes for ideal wandering territory. Feskekörka is a culinary delight – this indoor fish market is an institution for seafood and is renowned for its mouthwatering shellfish. And there are plenty of opportunities for adrenalin seekers too, whether it’s riding the wooden rollercoaster at Liseberg theme park or kayaking around the islands of the Gothenburg archipelago.
