Karlskrona in Sweden has many popular attractions, many relating to the city's naval heritage. The National Navy Museum has exhibitions depicting the Swedish Navy throughout history, and displays weapons, uniforms and shipyard handicrafts as well as a collection of 17th and 18th Century ship models and figureheads. Karlskrona is also home to the Blekinge Läns Museum (a museum of local history), and the Museum Leonardo Da Vinci Ideale. Every year in late July/early August a popular festival called The Sail takes place in the harbour of Karlskrona.
The town itself has plenty of historic sites, including the forts and walls of the city. The surrounding islands make a beautiful location in which to walk or tour by boat. The main square in Karlskrona is the biggest in Scandinavia, and the city is home to three 17th and 18th century churches, Fredrikskyrkan, Heliga Trefaldighetskyrkan and Amiralitetskyrkan. You can also visit the picturesque Wämö Park, which in summer plays host to markets, entertainment and much more.

Getting around Poland
Cheap and efficient InterCity trains are operated by Polskie Koleje Pañstwowe. These are fast, clean and efficient. However, the infrastructure of the railway is quite old and it may well be quicker and cheaper to use the bus for many routes.
By car, be aware that traffic drives on the right, and standard international traffic signs are used. Major inter-city routes use the prefix `E' and motorways use `A'. Petrol stations located along main routes are open 24 hours a day. Road quality ranges from smooth brand new motorways to pot-holed single lanes.
