Protectors of cities

Want to experience a fantastic guided tour at sea? Then you should book the guided tour to Kungsholms Fort which with its circular harbour has become a symbol of Karlskrona as a world heritage site and which served as a protection for the city and the country. Along the walls of the fort, exotic plants thrive from all corners of the earth brought there by the navy's long-range vessels. 2,000 people worked on building the fortress carved of stone from ruined fortresses and limestone from Öland. The outer wall is almost 2.5 half meters thick. There is also a "peace roof" made of wood that could easily be removed if needed.
