Karlskrona - Southern Sweden

Karlskrona is a beautiful harbour city in the Southern Swedish area of “Blekinge”. It is located on over 30 different islands and islets that are connected by bridges. This gives the city a very special atmosphere and environment. The holiday cottages that NOVASOL has to offer for a self catering holiday are perfect if you wish to explore the Swedish nature and sightseeing attractions. Karlskrona was originally a naval base for King Karl XI in 1679. One year after this it was dealt its town privileges. In 1682 bridges were built to the mainland which started Karlskrona’s journey to become the third largest city in Sweden. There are also many churches in Karlskrona that are worth visiting while staying there during your holiday. One of them is Sweden’s largest church made of wood. The foundation of “Fredrikskyrkan” was built in the year of 1720 and was finished in 1744. The architect was strongly influenced by other European styles, which have given the church a certain aesthetic look found nowhere else in Sweden. The same architect also built other churches such as “Trefaldighetskyrkan” between 1697 and 1709. This church has a quite strong Baroque type of style. For example it has a cubic roof similar to the Pantheon in Rome. The Pantheon was clearly a guiding stone for the aesthetics of Trefaldighetskyrkan. In Karlskrona you will also find a naval museum. This is located on the island “stumholmen” and is definitely worth a visit. Here you will find ship models and an underwater tunnel from which you can see shipwrecks.
