Drive along the coast to Karlshamn, known for its well preserved historical buildings. Karlshamn played an important role in the Swedish emigration to America as a large number of people left Sweden from here. By the harbour you can see a copy of Axel Olssons statue which depicts the key charaters of Vilhelm Moberg¬īs famous novels, Karl-Oskar and Kristina, looking out over the sea before starting their adventure. Just west of V√§xj√∂ you will reach the ‚ÄúKingdom of Crystal‚ÄĚ where you can visit one or two of the famous glass factories.

Day 6     Kalmar - Stockholm

Breakfast at the hotel. Kalmar was once one of the most important towns in the North and we recommend spending some time here before continuing back to Stockholm. The historical past is an integral part of the character of the city. Kalmar Castle, the Old Town and Kvarnholmen tell the tale of mighty kings and queens as well as commoners. Traces of the past are found in architecture, cultural artifacts and art as well as in the well-worn cobblestones that pave the streets. Return to Stockholm along the Eastern coast line via Västervik, Norrköping and Södertalje.
