Scenic Landscapes and Timeless Design

Kalmar is one of Sweden’s oldest cities, and has received the Europa Nostra award twice for the town’s historical and well-preserved atmosphere: A few minutes walk from the cruise pier, 17th-century architecture adorn the downtown area, and a distinct historical ambiance mix with modern art and design. The vibrant downtown shopping streets present world famous fashion, and a great variety of art galleries and boutiques exhibiting and selling arts and crafts too. Stroll about and meet the people at the city’s many outdoor cafés and restaurants, in the beautiful city park or in the charming Krusenstiernska garden.
