cruise Karlskrona

A World Heritage City - in the middle of the archipelago

Karlskrona offers great hospitality, smooth operations and world class excursions to all our cruise guests and agents.
The city centre of Karlskrona is uniquely situated in the middle of an archipelago, 6 km from the mainland. This gives a unique, spacious sense to the city - and breathtaking views. Karlskrona is an exciting encounter with Sweden’s naval history. In 1680, King Carl XI ordered the construction of the city as Sweden’s naval base, due to its location. The naval presence has ensured distinctive architectural qualities, and UNESCO has named Karlskrona a World Heritage City. Gunpowder towers and fortifications make a splendid backdrop, mixing with yellow ferries, white sails and even submarines visible in the waters around the city.
