In Blekinge, everything in Blekinge is close and so packed that when you are in a city, almost everything is just half an hour away. Follow the families who wake up in Sölvesborg and travel through Blekinge to Kristianopel. A day filled with cozy Blekinge adventure
Ready to start the day
Time to wake up and get up from the cozy bed at B&B Villa Orion, centrally located in the medieval city of Sölvesborg. Before breakfast, we take the adults boardwalk to the castle ruins. Once the most reliable defense facility with a tower of 35 meters.

Exciting industrial design
We are heading north. The family's technology interested wants to go to Ebbamåla Bruk outside Olofström. It will be fun with a guided tour in an old industrial environment. Here you can see how the technology worked at that time. We leave Ebbamåla with a newly purchased boot knob.

Science & exotic animals
We continue towards Karlshamn and the Kreativum Science Center, filled with clarity and knowledge. In about 170 discoveries, we are challenged to learn discoveries in a fun way. Now it sucks in the stomach, and we are taking a break in Kreaficum where it serves both pancakes, sausage, coffee and other good. Measured and satisfied, we make a trip to the outdoor area, Kreapark. There are tunnels, fun fountains and several stations.
Discover Kreativum Science Center
Straight across Kreativum lies Blekinge Exotic World where you can meet animals from five different continents. Curious monkeys, 3.5 meter long snakes and spiders among other exotic animals.
We drive by car to the east and stop in Ronneby. The children's restlessness turns into happy mines as we roll into Brunn's bath. Now it's going to be bathed and ride slides. We are looking forward to visiting Brunn's park right next door and enjoying coffee and pastries at the cozy café Mandeltårtan
The waterpark Brunnsbadet
Flavors from Blekinge
Tired of all the bathing we are heading for Karlskrona. However, we can not miss Äggaboden in Gärestad. A fantastic farm shop, awarded for it's high-class locally produced food.
Äggaboden i Gärestad
We arrive at Karlskrona, our second stop. Here the old man Rosenbom is waiting outside the 17th century Amirality Church. We enjoy the atmosphere of this fortified city with yards and fortifications, jumping on Kungsholmsfort, a fortress from the 17th century, and finally visiting the 300-meter long rhyming track. We note that the sun is also shining today in one of Sweden's sunniest cities. We finish with a picnic in the evening sun at Stumholmen. Put a coin in Rosenbom's poverty line

Mural Walk & Live Music
We continue north and park the car in the idyllic summer Kristianopel.
Checks in at Pensionat Stensvik and sees the sea just outside our window. As the darkness decreases, we rise to the massive 17th-century wall that runs around the whole peninsula. On our left side, the sea shines, sailboats add and people stroll along Storgatan with their charming wooden houses. After a glass, there will be live music at Hamnkrogen. Tonight, we are sleeping well guaranteed.
