A city built on 33 islands
The archipelago feeling is constantly present wherever you are in Karlskrona, due to the unique location. The city center is located on its own island, 6 km from the mainland. "Just like Venice," we say when we're a little cocky. From the highest point of the city center, The Great Square, Stortorget, where you will find the shopping streets, it only takes a few minutes walk to the jetty. There are archipelago boats, kayak rentals and lovely summer hangouts just outside the hotel door.
Karlskrona's history has given the city unique and magnificent environments with a sense of grandeur and exclusivity. Here on this page you will find tips on experiences in our proud world heritage city and a description of the city's different parts. We call them islands.
