Lovely tour of the opera house in Gotesburg. We were behind the scenes and learned how they prepared for productions, the vastness of it, the beauty of it, the hard work that goes into it. Very interesting, exciting and educational.

You can enjoy a very good lunch al fresco overlooking the river. Reserve ahead or be sure to arrive before noon to get a good table. On a recent visit, I enjoyed a well-prepared fish soup (light broth), an excellent hake entree and an average...More
