Kalmar castle (Sweden, photo: Laurenz Bobke)

Kalmar is a pleasant town in Southern Sweden that has many beautiful buildings and one truly historic monument: Kalmar castle, where the Kalmar Union (combining Denmark, Sweden and Norway) was founded in 1397, as a counterweight to the rapidly growing Hanse.
This is one of the most important and most beautiful castles in Sweden.
