Gothenburg (Göteborg), Sweden’s second biggest city, combines vibrant urbanity, a friendly vibe and seaside charm. It also has culinary prowess and a world-class craft beer scene.

It’s known for its friendly locals, and no wonder – living in such a characterful town right by the sea would make anyone cheerful and welcoming.
You can find 8 kilometers of temporary, art-covered construction fences in Gothenburg. At the initiative from the Swedish Transport Administration, artists were called to cover the fences which resulted in the colorful cityscape.
As a part of Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary celebrations, a 23-kilometre art trail from culture centre Blå stället in Angered to Röda sten in western Gothenburg, has been created. It all started with the international art competition Gothenburg Art 21 in 2017, where anyone could take part and the whole world was invited to vote for their favourites.
