Goteborg is voted the second most valuable city to visit in the world, by Lonley Planet.
 
The city is for example known for liseberg, the largest amusement park of northern europe. But he city is also rich in culture; museums of all kinds, old and new architecture, botanical gardens etc. shopping is also very good as well as eating out, especially seafood (goteborg has many international rewarded chefs).
Göteborg also have a wonderful archipelago with islands without traffic, only half an hour from our home (by public transport). The nature is very close to town; either you prefer the southern or northern archipelago or the woods and lakes of the inland.
Near Goteborg is bohuslän, a part of sweden which is a part of the world heritage, famous for its bronze age rock carvings. the small coastal fishing villages of bohuslän are also unique, not very far from goteborg. Bohuslän is ranked as number 7 in CNN´s ranking of the worlds 10 last great wilderness areas, in march 2013
