In Sweden, the most popular sport is soccer. Despite being a relatively small country population-wise, both the men’s and women’s national teams and the club teams have gained rather large success from time to time. The first association to administer a Swedish national football tournament was Svenska Idrottsförbundet, founded 1895 in Gothenburg, the dominating football town in Sweden, at the time.
Gothenburg is Sweden’s second largest city. It has become one of the most popular tourist areas in Scandinavia as tourists and other visitors return year after year. The city is known for fine, locally produced ingredients and top-notch restaurant life, which makes it a great reason to visit. Gothenburg is also the gateway to the Western Archipelago, with its peerless isles and barren grey skerries and they are easily accessible by boat from the city.
Sights to see in Gothenburg: Gothenburg Opera, Botanical Gardens, Liseberg, Alvsborgs fastning fortress, Gunnebo Castle, Skansen Kronan, Haga, Gothenburg Cathedral and much more!
