City walk in 17th-century Kalmar

In the 17th century, the entire city of Kalmar was moved to the island of Kvarnholmen, a gigantic project that was carried out against all odds. During the city tour you will learn more about life in Kalmar during the great power era and about the fate of the Regal ship Kronan. We tell about the teeming city life, about both the city president Grubbe and the executioner's daughter Margareta. You will hear about people, houses and events in and around the city of Kalmar when the great power was at its greatest. You will also learn more about the dramatic years during the Scanian War, when the great regal ship Kronan was wrecked and the enemy ravaged the coasts.
