A classic - Go on an unique tour to Kungsholms fort, which has defended the entrance to the city in the archipelago since the late 1700 century.
Kungsholms fort has been of great importance to the military of Sweden and it has been manned for over 300 years. The fort has been in the heat a few times, like when the Rssians were in archipelago at the battle of Svensksund in the late 1800 century. It was also a bit worrisome when the Englishmen were cruising around the Baltic sea in the early 1900 century.
It’s been a while since the fort were in its glory days as a strategic defensive fortification, and the activity on the fort has been reduced in comparison. But today the fort is providing us with the opportunity to experience something extraordinary. With its unique rundhamn, fortmuseum and botanic park with plants and trees from all over the world, the fort is a hit for all ages and nationalities. You will go from Fisktorget in Karlskrona with the archipelago boat MF Gåsefjärden and on its way out to the fort you will get a nice sightseeing tour in the archipelago.
