World heritage

The naval city of Karlskrona

It all started 300 years ago. The Great Power Sweden needs a powerful navy and is looking for a protected location for a new naval base that can defend the Swedish land areas. And some islands in the Blekinge archipelago fit perfectly. The best engineers, shipbuilders and architects are hired to follow KarlXI's will. Since knowledge and manpower are primarily derived from the other side of the Baltic Sea, this becomes a place where many languages are spoken. Soon an efficient shipyard and a royal city will emerge. A city worthy of a king; Carl's crown. More than 300 later, the naval base is still in Karlskrona. Visit the Naval Museum and learn more about the World Heritage Örlogsstaden Karlskrona. You can also download the free app "World Heritage Karlskrona" and get a guided tour through the city's history on your own.

Over 11,000 visitors come here every summer to experience Swedish industrial history, framed by period furniture and table linen. The collection was started by Margaretha Sjöberg in 1988 and today contains copies of most of the factory's production, from figures to hand-painted dishes. See complete tableware, porcelain from designers such as Hald and Skawonius, or view the exhibition.
