When someone mentions Sweden, the first city that comes in mind is its capital of Stockholm. While this is natural and justified, there is another place in Sweden that might be smaller in size and population, but it definitely makes up for it with its amazing sites and history – Gothenburg.

Gothenburg is the second largest city in this Nordic country. It boasts diversity, a plethora of museums and botanical gardens, and plenty of activity. Considering all that, anything is possible here – for a price.

Rich Man’s Go-To

Since Sweden is a fairly rich country, its standards aren’t for everyone. Prices of accommodation in Gothenburg can range from $30 for a dorm room to $130 for a hotel room.

The same rule applies to Gothenburg’s restaurants, as the main dishes go for $25 at local restaurants.

The best option for anyone who’s visiting Gothenburg on a budget is cooking, since it costs much, much less than eating out.

Let The Money Talk

In case you’re packing a lot of cash, then restaurants won’t be a problem for you. Another thing you can do with all that money is shop at Avenyn, the main street in Gothenburg. This is where the biggest stores and markets are found, and this is where you can spend all of your money in one day.

On the other hand, if your wallet is running a bit thin, there’s still stuff to do in this big city. For example, you can check out the lush Botaniska Tradgarden, the fortress of Skansen Kronan, or Slottsskogen, Gothenburg’s Natural History Museum.

For those who prefer a wilder vacation, we recommend visiting Liseberg. It’s the biggest amusement park on the Scandinavian island, as it offers a ton of roller-coasters and rides that will give you an adrenaline rush.

Bottom line, Gothenburg is place of history and luxury that offers many different experiences. It might be pricy, but with a bit of planning, even those on a small budget can still see many things and have a great time in this Swedish city.
