Guided tour - World Heritage tour at the Old Navy Shipyard with rope making
Come along on lovely guided tour out to Lindholmen, here you get to see some of the first pieces of Karlskrona's old shipyard.
BeskrivningThe heart of Karlskrona’s world heritage lies in the old shipyard, which has been left untouched since the 18th century. As Karlskrona as a city and naval base progressed most of the business was relocated to the new shipyard on Trossö. But the shipyard on Lindholmen was not forgotten, it has played a major part when it came to rope, reparations and maintenance of ships in Polhemsdockan - Sweden's oldest dry dock, which is still in use.
So come out and enjoy alive historical environments with exciting buildings for you to enter. Do not forget to have a look inside the almost infinite rope making building, which is the longest wooden building in Scandinavia.
