Marine Museum Karlskrona

Reviewed By Gian Claudio C - Rome, Italy

A very nice museum, the building are really well structured. It is possible to visit the museum for free and see a lot of interesting stuff. Outside it is possible to visit some war ship very well maintained and inside there is a submarine.
Within the museum there is also a restaurant, I strongly suggest to try it for the quality and the variety of choice.

Amiralitetskyrkan

Reviewed By Thomas E - Karlskrona, Sweden

It is supposed to be the largest wooden church in Scandinavia. Called by the locals Ulrica Pia draws attention of the visitors to the town which apparently surprises the city which is not sure what to do with that. The church is wooden, nice on the outside and inside, with a historic sculpture of Mats Rosenbom in front of it. The popularity is certainly spread by Noble Prize Winner's book - Sema Lagerlöf's The Wonderful Adventures of Nils. It does not matter - the opening hours of the church are irregular with nowhere to be easily checked. There is no grain of description of the church. The people stopped and asked about that point to an app you can download. Allthough the church is nice, the service about it very disappointing

The Kungsholm Fortress

Reviewed By ghost1975Portugal - Lisbon, Portugal

Interesting to know about the military inspiration of the city. A very nicely preserved fort, inserted on an island. You can go on a guided tour by boat, where you can see city surroundings from an interesting perspective and know more about the city and its history.

Drottningskars Kastell

Reviewed By Patrick K - Karlskrona, Sweden

Great visit in the summer time, come see the dungeons and view across the sea inlet where the chain connected this with kungsholmen, another beautiful spot. From the kastell you can easily reach the rest of aspo, a nice island to get away from the city to. The kastell has a cute little cafe and sometimes music events that are worth the visit. I would love to come back for an evening event to see it all lit up.

Vamoparken

Reviewed By dgjohansson - Ronneby, Sweden

It's a nice park for sure. A small "zoo" with garden animals and a bunch of historical buildings from the neighbourhood. Signs tell the story. I took a guided tour when I was there and it made it a lot more interesting. Questionable if I would visit the park without a second reason such as guided tours, events of other forms or something else to fill out the visit. Not a "must-see-attraction" i Karlskrona.

Amazing place with wonderful seal colony to watch and listen to. We dive here very often and hopefully will reinstate the overnight availabilities for next year. Very relaxing and great sunsets

Blekinge Museum

Reviewed By ziemowits679 - Northern Poland, Poland

The building is located on the estate of the family Wachmeister. It occupies the palace and utility rooms. In addition, the park contains a palace and a special play area for children. Very different collections, including the Swedish contemporary art. Interesting illustrations of everyday life of an old Karlskrona. Chateau collections also include the former governor of utilitarian objects. Garden palace in the French style. A large number of yew trees, there are also tulip trees. The park hosts music events.
Extremely interesting playground, illustrates the old life in Sweden. Children really feel good. The solutions are very simple, safe to use and promote children's activity. Inside the museum shop with various souvenirs. Traditional products, including toys for children. Is not it interesting today toy wooden or metal, no plastic and no electronics. Mechanical toys "on key" can be an alternative and complement.

Museum for Mobile Coastartillery

Reviewed By dgjohansson - Ronneby, Sweden

This collection of equipment must be quite unique in Sweden. The history of the moving coast artillery is shown in an interesting way. Being situated on the island of Aspo adds to the museums historic approach since the building itself is part of the museum. A bit tricky to find (the buidlning used to me a military storage so I guess tricky to find is a good thing in that case) in the centre of the island. A must see thing if you're into military history and equipment and are visiting the UNESCO protected Naval City of Karlskrona.

Amiralitetsklockstapeln

Reviewed By ziemowits679 - Northern Poland, Poland

The historic clock tower (1699). Designed to resemble Lighthouse of Alexandria (one of the seven wonders of the world). Its bells are synchronized with a bell tower standing near the church of the Admiralty. The tower is located in the Park Admiralty. Next to the tower closed railway tunnel. Previously, there was a railway line connecting the existing station with the shipyard. It is a pity that the tunnel is not available for tourists (begins near the park Hoglands). The park very artfully planned playground.

Trefaldighetskyrkan

Reviewed By ixot - Malmo, Sweden

Built in the 18th c. by one of the great Swedish Baroque architects - Tessin the Younger - to resemble the Pantheon in Rome. Very impressive ceiling. Somewhat oddly decorated in recent times - the changing table for babies for example, couldn't they have hidden that a little bit?
