Situated on Sweden's western coastline, Gothenburg attracts visitors with cultural festivals, a lively music scene, and a blend of classical and modern architecture. Home to a large student population, which makes a significant contribution to the city's youthful and energetic atmosphere, Gothenburg once served as the center of Sweden's shipbuilding industry. Although evidence of its working-class roots remains visible in and around the old harbor, most of the city's waterfront now serves as a busy tourist-driven area, offering easy access to fine museums, trendy cafes, and chic stores. To see Gothenburg from a slightly different perspective, take a guided boat tour of the city's famed 17th-century canals. Gothenburg is in Vastra Gotaland County.
