• Kalmar Castle

Kalmar

Historic Kalmar, a bustling small city of 62,000, has a rare Old World ambience and the most magnificent medieval castle in Scandinavia. The town center of Kvarnholmen, the charming Old Town, and the castle are all enjoyable to explore, making Kalmar Sweden's most appealing stop after Stockholm. From Kalmar, you can cross one of Europe's longest bridges to hike through the Stonehenge-like mysteries of the strange island of Öland.
