One of the first glassworks in Sweden, today the Kosta Boda complex (established 1742) pulls in coachloads of visitors, who raid the vast discount outlets. It’s touristy, but the Kosta Boda Art Hotel, exhibition gallery, glass-blowing demonstrations and great cafes make it a good base for exploration. There are plenty of glass-blowing demos in the old factory quarters.

Inside the factory’s outlet store, the Kosta Boda Art Café serves tasty quiches and grilled sandwiches for around Skr60.
