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.
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.
