Introducing Kalmar

Not only is Kalmar dashing, it claims one of Sweden’s most spectacular castles, with an interior even more perfect than its turreted outside. Other local assets include Sweden’s largest gold hoard, from the 17th-century ship Kronan and the storybook cobbled streets of Gamla Stan (Old Town) to the west of Slottshotellet.

The Kalmar Union of 1397, when the crowns of Sweden, Denmark and Norway became one, was agreed to at the castle.
