Göteborg, also known by its English name, Gothenburg, is a lively coastal city located on the west coast of Sweden. Head over in August for The Gothenburg Culture Festival: a week-long street party featuring live music, dance, fashion-design, film, comedy, and more. Also in August is the Way Out West summer music festival which takes place in Slottsskogen Park. This large park doubles as a zoo and is located very near to a HI Hostel. To save some money, buy a Göteborg City Card for free travel on public transport, free admission to attractions, and discounts in shops. For an adrenaline rush visit Liseberg – Sweden’s largest theme park where you can ride the 90km per hour wooden roller coaster Balder. If you’re a seafood fan you won’t be disappointed by Göteborg’s restaurants as fresh fish and shellfish are a speciality of this maritime destination.
