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. Despite its militant past, Karlskrona is a peaceful town, with an open and friendly atmosphere. Gunpowder towers and fortifications make a splendid backdrop, mixed with yellow ferries, white sails and lots of kayaks visible in the waters around the city. 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 holds yet another nomination from UNESCO, being part of a Blekinge biosphere reserve. We dare say it´s a one of a kind combination. Welcome to Karlskrona. Your calm getaway in the Baltic!
