Kalmar is located at the narrowest point to the nearby island of Öland. The six kilometer long Öland bridge that links the island to the mainland begins in Kalmar.
Due to its location on the former border with Denmark, the Kalmar Castle played an important role in Swedish history. The many cannons of the castle, which almost all point to the south, bear witness to this fact.
Kalmar is a pretty lively town. We have a nice place in the harbor.
