Karlskrona. In the middle of the archipelago.
The archipelago is a perfect place to relax, recharge and just be. Self or together. No requirements, no musts - just be.
Sweden's southernmost archipelago is composed of 1,650 islands, skerries and islets - from Hasslö in the west to Utlängan in the east. Savour blue days of wind, water, salt splashed rocks and glorious bays for bathing. Discover this chain of ilsands in your own way.

Karlskrona - our proud city
Drop anchor in Karlskrona, the city that was founded in 1680, when Karl XI decided to establish the country's new naval base here.
More than 300 years later the Naval base is still here in Karlskrona - the city where old meets new and tradition meets innovation. In 1998, Karlskrona gained World Heritage Status by UNESCO.
Blekinge Museum & Grevagården
Blekinge Museum is located at the Fisktorget, with exhibition rooms in several buildings and the museum always has something new going on. The museum describes both Karlskrona and Blekinge's history in some fixed exhibits, including a noted 1700s floor in the Wachtmeister palace, called Grevagården. There is also a pleasant cafe in the reconstructed baroque garden. The museum surprises often with exciting exhibitions where even our own time are mirrored.
