Gothenburg is the second largest city in Sweden and the largest non-capital in the Nordic countries. It is beautifully situated on the west coast and has a population of 570,000 in the actual city and one million in the greater Gothenburg area.
Everything is close by in Gothenburg. In fact, most things are within walking or cycling distance. The sea and several beaches are within a couple of kilometres from the city, as are extensive nature reserves and outdoor recreation areas. The beautiful archipelago with its many islands is a short trip away.
