Kalmar Castle

The history of this legendary castle goes back 800 years. For a long time, Kalmar Castle was an important fortification and known as the key to the kingdom because of its strategical location. The Swedish-Danish border was located only a short distance to the south, because Scania and Blekinge were Danish territories at the time. Kalmar Castle was given its current design during the 16th century, when the Vasa kings Gustav, Erik XIV and Johan III rebuilt the medieval castle and made it into a Renaissance palace, furnished and decorated in continental fashion. Even before then the castle had played an important role in Nordic politics, for example as the location for the signing of the Kalmar Union in 1397. This event was celebrated during the whole year of 1997, the union's 600th anniversary. Kalmar Castle is a symbol for Kalmar. The castle's history features international politics, court intrigues, fiery sieges and fierce battles. Today the castle is vibrant and lively place where many people visit.

Skalby 4H-gard

Reviewed By gabrielaolem - Kalmar, Sweden

The farm is a lovely place for meeting the animals, touch them, learn about them and let kids take part in the activities. We have no kids, but when we have them, we will make Skälby part of our weekend strolls. There are places for a picnic in the garden, bringing your own food or taking it from the café. Absolutely recommend the visit.

Walk around Svino on a lovely, clear spring day - this is a simple but lovely bridge - doesn’t overpower the natural surroundings

Reviewed By _obrienlexi - Troy, United States

Kalmar is one of the most beautiful, small European cities that I have visited. There is a balance and unity to the downtown area that makes it very relaxed and livable. The old town has cobblestone streets, buildings that are architecturally appropriate in scale, and lots of small shops and restaurants that are welcoming and locally owned. The seafaring history of the town is evident everywhere and the sea is never more than a few steps away. The main square in the old part of town has the cathedral and the town hall, both very beautiful and inspiring. The interior of the cathedral was lovely and designed to create a sense of awe and humility. Yet, the square and the town was brimming with life and vitality. Well worth a visit.
