Karlskrona. In the middle of the archipelago.
The archipelago is a perfect place to relax, recharge and just be. Self or together. No requirements, no musts - just be.
Sweden's southernmost archipelago is composed of 1,650 islands, skerries and islets - from Hasslö in the west to Utlängan in the east. Savour blue days of wind, water, salt splashed rocks and glorious bays for bathing. Discover this chain of ilsands in your own way.
On land, on water, for real! The museum tells the Swedish Navy's exciting history. Karlskrona's most visited attraction! Boats, figureheads, models, sub-marines, all of which tell of the Swedish Navy's exciting story from empire to today.

Drop anchor in Karlskrona, the city that was founded in 1680, when Karl XI decided to establish the country's new naval base here.
More than 300 years later the Naval base is still here in Karlskrona - the city where old meets new and tradition meets innovation. In 1998, Karlskrona gained World Heritage Status by UNESCO.

Blekinge Museum is located at the Fisktorget, with exhibition rooms in several buildings and the museum always has something new going on. The museum describes both Karlskrona and Blekinge's history in some fixed exhibits, including a 18th century floor in the Wachtmeister palace, called Grevagården. There is also a pleasant cafe in the reconstructed baroque garden. Do not miss a visit to Grevargrundet - Blekinge Museum's playground with archipelago theme.
An idyllic village from the 17th century also known as "The thousand roses village". Smell the roses and the sea, hike on the mighty wall that frames the village and reminds us of the former Danish times. Take a swim from the pier or from one of the bathing areas. Sit on the dock and enjoy the boat life in the harbor. In Kristianopel you will find several small shops, cozy cafes and eateries.
Fortythree red cottages with white painted corners, waving flags and the deep blue sea. Where have you seen these before? Well, this most Swedish picture motif, perhaps the best known of all, is here in wonderful Karlskrona – on the little headland of Brändaholm. Karlskrona's allotment cottages have a unique building style from the 1920s, with small houses built in similarl design, size and colours.
Karlskrona City Marina
A modern guest harbour with all facilities, walking distance to the city centre. There is also a motor home parking area on the dockside.
The Admiralty Church is only five years younger than the city itself and was inaugurated in 1685 as a temporary measure, while waiting for a larger stone church. To the delight of us this unique wooden church was never demolished. Come and meet The Old Man Rosenbom, Karlskrona’s most famous inhabitant – lift his hat and drop in a donation! You will also find a statue of Nils Holgersson here.
