Product Description:
With a bewildering array of over 8,000 islands, endless meadows of wild flowers and the lively and cosmopolitan coastal city of Gothenburg, west Sweden perfectly encapsulates both the rugged beauty and urban delights Scandinavia has to offer. In the first guidebook dedicated to the area, Bradt's West Sweden reveals the staggering variety of the area's experiences, includes a section on the region's history and culture and offers detailed maps of both the coastline and the cities. Centrally located within Scandinavia, west Sweden is quickly developing as a vibrant tourist location, and in 2012 there were over 3.5 million guest nights in Gothenburg. The author, James Proctor, has written Bradt guides to Lapland and the Faroe Islands and has visited Scandinavia annually since 1986.

Gothenburg and Sweden s West Coast (Klaava Travel Guide)
Product Description:
The West Coast region in the southwest corner of Sweden is that nation’s favorite vacation destination. The City of Gothenburg, which is located on the West Coast, is Sweden’s second largest city after the capital Stockholm. Scandinavian city life in Gothenburg and sea life on the West Coast combine to create an attractive vacation destination that brings travelers to the region from Sweden, other European countries and beyond the ocean.

Gothenburg and Sweden’s West Coast is a visual travel guide packed with information, photographs, maps and videos on this exquisite Scandinavian destination. Long time ago, Vikings used to live in the region, but also Danes and Norwegians have ruled the West Coast. Region’s history is still present in many castles, fortresses and old villages, but equally impressive is the scenery across the beautiful archipelago.

The guidebook shows you the best sights in Gothenburg and on the West Coast that every visitor should see. It also directs readers to outdoors and indoors activities that are popular in the region.

Gothenburg and Sweden’s West Coast helps you plan your trip to Sweden, and because the book has been designed for tablets, laptops and smartphones, travel tips are always within reach in the destination, too.
