As the second biggest city in Sweden and the city with the most students Gothenburg is a great place if you want to experience the student life as well as living in a big city. The city is stuffed with kind people and a lot of things to do on a relatively small area. This combined with beautiful nature such as central parks, “slottsskogen”, “botaniska trädgården” and the constant presence of water from rivers and the sea makes Gothenburg very living.

In your free time there are a lot of different things to do, since the city of Gothenburg offers something to every taste. There are two reoccurring music festivals in Gothenburg each year namely Way Out West and Metaltown. These two combined with the annual Kulturkalaset, which is a practically free cultural party in the center of the city (consisting of music, art, dance and theatre among others), should cover all the cultural interests any one could have. Gothenburg have also top performing sports teams in the highest divisions in for example; football, ice hockey and handball. The city also supplies a lot of different shopping stores, coffee shops and a vibrant night life. In addition it holds the largest amusement park in Scandinavia.
