Gothenburg - Sweden’s second largest city housing around half a million people, is undergoing a transformation from industrial seaport to a contemporary cultural and international hub. Perhaps the most surprising change in Gothenburg is in its restaurants and other eateries. The city has gained an international reputation for innovative cuisine using local produce, mainly north Atlantic fish and shellfish.
Gothenburg boasts several Michelin Guide restaurants and has just been crowned the Culinary Capital of Sweden 2012.
Gothenburg is a gateway to the Western Archipelago, with its peerless isles and barren grey skerries and they are easily accessible by boat from the city.
