Kalmar is a small city on Sweden’s southeast coast, facing the Baltic Sea. It’s a pretty town, with a well-preserved medieval centre, and is a popular tourist destination. The city is also home to the country’s third-largest university, which ensures a lively and youthful atmosphere. Kalmar is a convenient base for exploring the picturesque Öland island, just a short ferry ride away, and for trips to the nearby city of Karlskrona, home to Sweden’s largest naval base.


What people say about Kalmar

Kalmar is one of the best Swedish towns to visit during summer. It is a nice town in itself with the castle, nice architecture, city walls, terrific nature and location by the ocean. The food is also better than most places of its size in Sweden. As a bonus, you get easy access to the beautiful island of Öland that is just a ferry ride or a quick drive across over the bridge away.


A stop by the castle is a must and have a beer in one of the restaurants by “Larmtorget”. Lastly, make room for a day or two to visit the island “Öland”.
