Welcome to Blekinge

Today, the jewel in Blekinge's crown is the Unesco-lauded naval town of Karlskrona, famed for its wealth of baroque architecture. The region’s second-largest town, Karlshamn, was the last part of the homeland many thousands of 19th-century emigrants saw before they sailed off to new lives in America.

Beyond these urban centres a low-key landscape of fish-filled rivers and lakes, brooding forests and a stunning archipelago – perfect for reading books or lazy island-hopping – awaits.
