Karlskrona is beautifully situated on the south-east tip of Sweden, built upon 33 islands around the island of Trossö in the Blekinge archipelago. A baroque city founded in 1680 and inspired by Venice. Today, Karlskrona is a modern city, a leader in the field of IT development, and more than 10 % of those employed work for IT companies. Karlskrona also has a strong profile as the meeting point of the Baltic, with a newly built ferry port for future traffic with other Baltic countries. By sailing daily between Karlskrona and Gdynia, Poland, the Stena Europe provides a quick and easy shortcut to Europe.
