Located on the west coast, Göteborg is the main fishing port in the country. At the same distance away from the cities of Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo, this city is a major junction in Northern Europe, which is illustrated by its highly cosmopolitan atmosphere. Besides its numerous museums, including that of the Navy Museum, the canals crossing the city lend it an undeniably attractive character. You can go on a four to six day cruise to discover the other side of the country and travel to Göteborg from Stockholm (and back) by ship via the Göta Canal.
