Sweden - part 3 - rural areas, Eksharad, Rattvik

Fifth day started with Haverud Aqueduct in Dalsland area, place where road, railway and waterway meet.

We stopped at Ekenas, small village, very peaceful place. We stayed for the night at Ransaten Camping, nice place, 425SEK for a night.

Our 6th day started with Fryken Lake, then we went to Ekharad.

At the end of the day we spent the night at the greatest place during our whole visit - Camping Gronklitt Stugby Bjornen. It's not on a main track so it's not so obvious to find, but that's definitely worth it. 625SEK for a night at very high standard and very close to nature.

7th day - big car show at Rattvik. City is known for the longest pier in Scandinavia - 625m. Water in the lake was extremely clear.

While searching for a place to sleep we visited Camping Framby Udde.

Sweden - part 2 - Marstrand and its vicinity

Second part from my trip to Sweden. Fourth day started with a trip to Lacko Castle, nice building but not very much to see when it comes to interior. Although placed in a lovely location.

In the afternoon we went to see little town called Marstrand with 17th century fortress. It's definitely worth visiting. We haven't been inside the fortress due to lack of time, but from it's vicinity there's a stunning view.

On our way back from Marstrand we stopped on a parking where we saw a lot of old cars. "Raggare" is what you want to google if you want to read about Swedes love to vintage American cars.

Sweden - part 1 - Malmo, Goteborg

This is long overdue, but finally I finished with photos from my last vacation in Sweden. Our trip began in Rostock, Germany after a day-long ride by car, with overnight ferry to Malmo, Sweden.

Early in the morning, after arrival in Sweden we started sightseeing by walking around Malmo. Our first stop was the famous Turning Torso building and it's vicinity.

Because we started sightseeing so early in the morning, there was still time to find a place for the night and visit huge ZOO called Skanes Djurpark. I finally had a chance to see moose, as on my trip to Norway I didn't have the chance, they hid themselves very well. :) Shots didn't go well so only 4 from the park.

Our first night was at Ullstorps stuguthyrning camping with 600SEK for a night. This place is extremely quiet and peaceful. It's also very close to Skanes Djurpark ZOO and we even got discount for the ZOO just for staying there.

On our second day we travelled to Alingsås and stayed in Lygnareds Camping (350SEK/night), this time not a cabin but a room. We had a lazy evening, swim in the nearby lake (water was extremely clean and extremely cold!), play cards, just the usual stuff. We rested well before our trip to Göteborg the next day. The city welcomed us with heat and clean sky and a small welcome committee. We started with city's port. I wouldn't be myself if I didn't photograph birds and ships...

After this we went Maritiman museum. Visiting the ships inside the museum took as a few hours but it was definitely worth it. I took a lot of photos and selecting only few was a struggle!

The most interesting to see was Swedish submarine Nordkaparen from 1962.

Later we went to see more city centre, district called Haga was particularly eye-catching.

When you drive into Göteborg with your own car you will be directed to free parking spaces with electronic boards, very neat. We eventually stayed in Rosenlund 2 parking with 15SEK/1hour or 80SEK/12hours fee.
