GOTHENBURG

Gothenburg – Scandinavian Amsterdam – the second biggest city in Sweden after Stockholm. Gothenburg was founded by royal edict of Gustav II Adolf in the beginning of seventeenth century. The city was built on the shores of the Kattegatt along the mouth of the Göta River. On the west side it is surrounded by a cluster of larger and smaller islands forming the Archipelago of Gothenburg. Gothenburg has been designed by Dutch architects skilled at draining of wetlands along the river. As a result the city got the look like other Dutch cities built at that time. During the Dutch period Gothenburg followed Dutch town laws. Consequently Dutch gained tremendous influence and political power here. Even introduction of Dutch language as an official language in the city was considered.

CARLSTEN

Stone fortress located on the island of Marstrand. The initiator of the building was King Charles X Gustav of Sweden. The mission of the fortress was to defend the Bohuslän province incorporated to Sweden under the Treaty of Roskilde. The Peace Treaty concluded in Roksilde in 1658 ended the Northern War between Sweden and Denmark. The Treaty provisions were crushing for Denmark. For the price of peace, The Kingdom of Denmark was forced to relinquish 1/3 of its own territory to the Kingdom of Sweden. The fortress was used by the Swedish army until the early 90s.
