Gothenburg Attractions


Gothenburg, built in the 17th century, when the Swedish Empire was at the peak of its power, was conceived as a trading post. Since Gothenburg did not grow spontaneously for many centuries, but was built in a short time in accordance with the developed plan, accuracy and order are felt in its streets and canals. A new wave of construction in the 1920s spawned cultural meccas such as the Gothenburg Museum of Art.

Let's not forget that Gothenburg is also a sea city, so tourists can enjoy such activities as a trip to the islands of nearby archipelagos or even just a visit to the Maritime Museum. You got a brief idea about this northern city, now let's talk in more detail about what to see in Gothenburg.

Gothenburg Museum of Art

This prestigious museum was opened in 1923, just in time for the Gothenburg International Exhibition. Here you can appreciate works written by artists from all over Europe from the 1400s to the 21st century, inclusive.

But the museum earned wide recognition due to Scandinavian works of art of the XIX century - the works of Edward Munch, Peder Severin Kroyer, Bruno Lillefors and Anders Zorn. Do not ignore the French collection: there are paintings by Gauguin, Picasso, Monet, Chagall and Van Gogh. And lovers of the Renaissance and Baroque are waiting for the work of Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Rubens and Jacob Jordaens.

The Mastug Church, dating from 1914, was designed in a Scandinavian romantic style by Siegfried Erickson, who is also the author of the Gothenburg Art Museum.

The first exhibit is a blue whale, which was washed ashore near Gothenburg in 1865. This is the world's only blue whale skeleton installed in the museum building. Another huge animal is the African elephant, which weighed six tons during its life and six meters in height. Of the more instructive exhibits of the museum is “Space Walk” (Rymdpromenaden).
