The archipelago town
Karlskrona is the capital of the county Blekinge and is situated on 33 islands, with a maritime history, and many forms of naval activity. The fascinating atmosphere has also impressed UNESCO and added the city to the World Heritage list.
Visit the annual festival in August, a festivity that will hold the interest of an entire family, with old and new maritime culture, food and drink from the region, activities for children, sailing boats and other vessels lined along the harbor.
