Karlskrona

Jag har suttit på jobbet och letat upp en massa information om Karlskrona åt några av våra nya medarbetare som inte kommer ifrån staden, borde nästan tagit jobb på Turistbyrån efter detta...

Men det var riktigt roligt och intressant att leta information och se Karlskrona med en besökares ögon.
Upptäckte bl.a. att vi har ett safari här i Karlskrona, genast började man tänka på vilda djur som giraffer, lejon o elefanter... gick in på sidan o det visade sig vara ett GÄDDsafari :)

Största utmaningen med denna sammanfattningen var nog att allt skulle vara på engelska, och inte låta som en tråkig gammal skolbok.

Tänkte att jag lägger in texten, ja på engelska, här nedan som inte rör företaget - den får ju inte spridas. Blir väl ca 2/3 kvar när jag tagit bort företagets del....

Jag har även tagit bort alla länkar till bostadsdelen, lite onödigt att ha en massa lägenhetslänkar på bloggen som väldigt troligt inte kommer vara aktuella om ett tag...

Men hoppas att ni får upp ögonen lite för Karlskrona :)  


Welcome to Karlskrona


Karlskrona is spread over many islands, Trossö is the main one where the city center is located. Landmarks on Trossö include the Karlskrona naval base and Stortorget, the large town square at the centre of the island at its highest point with two churches.


In Sweden we have a country code +46 (you skip the first 0 in the phone number when you use +46 abroad (0709… gets +46 709….) In Karlskrona our area code is 0455.



Your arrival


The preferred way to travel to Karlskrona is to take a flight to Copenhagen(CPH) airport.

When you landed and got your luggage, is it time to take the train to Karlskrona. The train station is located under your feet when you arrive into the arrival terminal.

The train ride is around 3 hours and the last stop is Karlskrona so you won’t miss it. The trains are leaving frequently, often every hour, but please double check the departure times of arrival. The time table can be found in this link:


You get the ticket in a ticket machine whit your credit card.

If all works, it should look like the picture below and you only need to validate the “Depart” date, you change language in the upper right corner “välj språk”
If you instead of flying to Copenhagen, fly to Stockholm/Arlanda (ARN) airport, you need to take a domestic flight to Ronneby (RNB) airport (it´s a small airport) and then you need to take a flight-bus or taxi to get the last part to Karlskrona. Both are standing just outside the entrance.

If you take a taxi, it´s recommended to book one before you fly from Arlanda.



Here is some information on what Karlskrona can offer you;



Accommodation


Karlskrona has several different types of rental accommodations in town. If you lucky you will find someone whit a small garden or a balcony.




When you look for an apartment, don´t take Kungsmarken and Marieberg areas as your first choice, it´s not so popular so save that as a last alternative.


You can find apartments, furniture, bicycles, cars, etc. on a purchase and sales site called Blocket.
The site is in Swedish but luckily the are photographs
