Skara is a charming Swedish city with a long and fascinating history. Situated on the banks of Lake Vänern, its cobbled streets are a joy to explore. Visit the ruins of Skara Abbey, a former Catholic monastery dating back to the 12th century, then wander through the old city center, admiring the colorful buildings and quaint boutiques. Don’t miss the impressive Skara Cathedral, the largest church in the region, or the Skara Sommarland, a family-friendly theme park. Sample some of the local delicacies, such as the renowned Västergötland cheese, before tucking into a traditional ‘smorgasbord’.
