Andrew Ferren visited Sweden’s second city, Gothenburg and found the place quite charming. He is writing about Gothenburg in an article in tomorrow’s issue of The New York Times: Where the World Meets Sweden, and Vice Versa.

Gothenburg is located on the west coast of Sweden, which faces the North Sea and the Atlantic, in contrast to the capital Stockholm which lies on the east coast on the Baltic Sea. The sea and waterways have had a major impact on Gothenburg. A major river floats through it, also an important canal, and there is an archipelago of 1,000 islands between the city and the open sea.

Gothenburg has become a center for modern Swedish gastronomy, with no less than four restaurants with Michelin stars. And seven of the last twelve winners of the national Chef of the Year award come from Gothenburg.

Outside of Gothenburg lies the charming suburban town, Haga, which is filled with 17th-century homes, cozy cafes and antiques shops.

The article also lists a few restaurants and hotels. And The New York Times Gothenburg Travel Guide section offers further advice on where to stay, where to eat, and what to do.

Also check out the website Goteborg.com for useful travel information about the city.
