Friendly and open Gothenburg

Gothenburg or Göteborg is one of the biggest cities in Sweden besides its capital Stockholm. It goes side by side as member of the largest cities in northern Europe like Copenhagen, Helsinki and Oslo.

The city can be found in the far Southern part of Sweden, on its west coast looking into Denmark. The city features its own hustling port in the North Sea sharing the same waters as United Kingdom, Nederlands, Belgium and other countries. Life in Gothenburg runs at a more relaxed pace which compared to other major cities in Europe like Berlin, Paris or Burssels is a nice change of pace. Also this comes to expression even more when considering “expensive Europe”, Göteborg is wallet friendly no matter what you do and where you go.
