Blekinge is Sweden's second smallest province in southeast Sweden and has about 160,000 inhabitants. The landscape divided into three parts. The northern part has mostly wood and stone, which makes the soil hardy. The middle section has lush deciduous forest and many lakes. The southern region has a warm winter climate which makes deciduous trees like a book, chestnut, walnut and fruit trees are good. At Ryssberget is one of Sweden's largest beech forests. Several large salmon and sea trout attract anglers from all over the world. What is unique about Blekinge's rivers is that the rapids flow to the sea; otherwise, it would be the opposite.
