In the "Glasriket" to the south Swedish glass empire there is
not only a big number of glassworks to be visited, but also an elk's
park. In the matching shop there is everything - really everything - on
the subject Elk: From elk's socks through elk's T-shirts up to elk's
Many Swedish towns have a city centre friendly to pedestrian.
Kalmar also belongs to it.
The castle of Kalmar lies to the south of the bridge to Öland
directly with the water. Last in his history full of change it was used
even as a prison.
From the embankment arrangements one can see the island Öland which is
connected about a several kilometres long bridge with the mainland.
To the west of the Vänern in the "Dalsland" there is a
practicable sea scenery by the boat.
As a part of the Dalsland canal a traffic jam step with several sluices
originated with Haverud.
In summer many leisure boats go about the sea scenery. Canoe
drivers use the overnight stay possibilities on the sea shores.
It is interesting that with Haverud several traffic routes cross
about one another: Motor road - railroad track - waterway - footpath -
From Frederikstad in Norway many sailing ships were on the way to the
Bremerhaven Sail. Besides, some took her way by the Kosterfjord. The
weather was very bad.
One did not know whether there was more water about or under the boat.
However, the mackerels have bitten, nevertheless. They are
salted and later smoked .
Well, the air humidity was still very high.
From Strömstad the old connecting road leads in the direction of
the south along the coastal line and connects some very nicely situated
places in the "Bohus-Län". Close to Lysekil (canned fishes) lies the
place Smögen. Protected by the Schären the old harbour served the local
fishermen in earlier time. Today Smögen
has developed to a tourist place.
The harbours way (Brygga) is at the same time a promenade. Many shops
or restaurants lie directly with the water.
In the rear part of the harbour basin one finds the typical, old
boat houses who still are in use today.
The road to town offers an imposing view of Smögen and in the
direction of Skagerak. The old harbour lies behind, on the left beside
the water tank.
