Quick Guide to Gothenburg
The first thing you'll notice about Gothernburg is its calmness: you won't really find traffic jams, overcrowded pavements or any real sense of urgency here. Everything seems to stride along in a laid-back manner. This is epitomised by the locals, who all seem to speak perfect English and have a kind spirited demur.
Just because there's a laid-back atmosphere, it's no way an indication it's a sleepy city. There's plenty to do, whether you want to visit one the many museums, go for a stroll in one of the huge open parks, that usually come equipped with free zoos and ridiculously cute animals such as penguins and deer's. If it's nightlife you're looking for then there are plenty of funky bars and nightclubs in the main partying area: Avenyn. Whilst you'll find a selection of quaint shops dotted along the cobbled streets waiting to be explored.
