Karlskrona and its surroundings are like a beautiful place without a roof. We have furnished it with beautiful beaches and cliffs, walking trails, nature reservs and the ever-present water. Visit the archipelago with a picnic basket, take a dip at Stumholmen in the middle of the city or fish from a boat in the early dawn. You will probably never forget it. Well, we are spoiled, but we will happily share.
Brändaholm - 43 red cottages
Fortythree red cottages with white painted corners, waving flags and the deep blue sea. Where have you seen these before? Well, this most Swedish picture motif, perhaps the best known of all, is here in wonderful Karlskrona – on the little headland of Brändaholm. Karlskrona's allotment cottages have a unique building style from the 1920s, with small houses built in similarl design, size and colours.
Kristianopel - a gem
An idyllic village from the 17th century also known as "The thousand roses village". Smell the roses and the sea, hike on the mighty wall that frames the village and reminds us of the former Danish times. Take a swim from the pier or from one of the bathing areas. Sit on the dock and enjoy the boat life in the harbor. In Kristianopel you will find several small shops, cozy cafes and eateries.
