A glimpse of Gothenburg Sweden






















One of the stops on my winter vacation was Gothenburg, it was a very short overnight stop so i didn't get a chance to explore the city that much, but despite that i still manage to captured some beautiful photos of the city and its harbor.

Enjoy the photos Guys!

Facts about Gothenburg:
Gothenburg is the second largest city in Sweden and fifth largest in the Nordic countries. It has the largest seaport as well in the Nordic countries. It is situated in the west coast of Sweden. It used to be a Dutch colony until it gained its freedom.  The city of Gothenburg was heavily influenced by Dutch designed thus it resembles like one of the The Netherlands city, Amsterdam.

Compared to other scandinivian countries Sweden is inexpensive, from fares, hotels, foods and shopping  plus the fact that it has so much fantastic attractions, you can do a lot in Gothenburg without making your piggy bank turns up its trotters.
