This fully revised third edition of Bradt's West Sweden including Gothenburg remains the most comprehensive - and only standalone - guidebook to this enchanting region. In the first dedicated guidebook, Bradt's West Sweden including Gothenburg reveals the staggering variety of the area's experiences, including a chapter on Gothenburg and a section on the region's history and culture, and offers detailed maps of both the coastline and the cities. Included in this edition are sections on Top 10 'must do' and Top 5 Wild Swimming spots, road trip suggestions and coverage of Boras, the region's second largest municipality. The author, James Proctor, has written Bradt guides to Lapland and the Faroe Islands and has visited Scandinavia annually for over 30 years. Centrally located within Scandinavia, west Sweden is quickly developing as a vibrant tourist location and continues to attract an increasing number of visitors. With a bewildering array of over 8,000 islands, endless meadows of wild flowers and the lively and cosmopolitan coastal city of Gothenburg, west Sweden perfectly encapsulates both the rugged beauty and urban delights Scandinavia has to offer.
