If you are travelling to Gothenburg and want to explore the city there are a lot of sights you can choose to visit. Or why not go shopping downtown? Gothenburg is found on the west coast of Sweden and the city has plenty to offer. Gothenburg is Swedens second largest city. It was founded in 1621 by Gustav Adolf ll, whos statue you can see at Gustav Adolfs square in the city center, but was built during the 17th century by the Dutch. This has given Gothenburg its characteristic kanals and rows of threes along the quay. Gothenburg started its journey as a shipping and industrial city and has today developed into a modern and attractive city for the international market.
