About Kalmar

From Sweden's largest gold coin discovery (found in the wreck of 17th century warship) to the turrets of its impressive castle, the city of Kalmar offers cruises here a treasure-trove of attractions. Once one of the most important cities in the North, it remains a vibrant commercial centre yet retain an old world charm. With winding lanes and wooden houses, the evocative Old Town was the heart of the city until 1647 when it was almost totally destroyed by fire and the centre moved to Kvarnholmen. Encircled by a canal, this island is well known for its museums, shops and restaurants.

No cruise to Kalmar is complete however without experiencing the strategically important Key to the Kingdom - a well-preserved Renaissance castle and significant defensive fortification.
