If you have visited my website in the last 2-3 weeks, you may have seen that I have been on a vacation in Gothenburg, Sweden. During my trip, I tried to experience the city as much as I can, even during a bad weather. Side note: the weather was amazing for most of my visit.
It’s time for second to last post about my trip to Gothenburg, Sweden. The day before I headed back to Croatia, I have visited the Volvo Museum, which covers the development of Swden’s leading vehicle manufacturer.
Since I came to Gothenburg, I’ve been hearing about the Lilla Bommen building, called – The Lipstick (Swedish: Lappstiftet). The nickname makes the sense when you see it! It is also known as a Skanskaskrapan (The Skansa Skyscraper), Vattenstanded (a double entendre: The Water Level and The Water Erection) and Legohuset (The Lego House).
When I came to Gothenburg, one of the locations I had to visit was the Alvsborg Bridge. It is the 933 meter long suspension bridge over Gota alv. It was built in 1966, designed by Sven Olof Asplund, and it connects the north and the south part of the city.
After a visit to Universeum and a short walk around the city, the next stop was – Liseberg. Liseberg is, as the brochure says, the greatest amusement park in Scandinavia, which offers around 40 attractions and rides, hundreds of thousands of flowers, games, dance, music and good food.

After an amazing day spent in Aeroseum and Maritiman, the following day was as entertaining as the previous one. The first location was Universeum. It’s something like a science center – adventure stretching over seven floors with animals, experiments and challenges.
