Travel Tips for Växjö

YOU CERTAINLY MUST GO SEE A GLASBLOWERS WORKSHOP.

by eden_teuling

I shall add here a little plan on which you can see where these workshops are situated.

Left hand side you see the city of VäXJö and on the righthand side the city of NYBRO AND IN BETWEEN these two lots of places where you can visit!

Do enjoy it to the full, it is great! THE GLASSBLOWING......

Theatre and music

by Sjalen

Växjö Theatre is a nice little listed building. Here you will find guest plays from national theatres on tour, but also local student humour and New Year's fun. Next to it (in the back of the picture) is the much more modern concert hall.

Scandinavian design

by Sjalen

Scandinavian design is of course famous and why not look at it in one of its centres - the furniture village of Lammhult north of Växjö. Also a good base for my tip above as the scenic villages are close...

Old semi-detached houses

by Sjalen

These houses belong to the oldest semi detached in Växjö and I think they are marvellous! Most semi-detached houses in the World are in brick or other material but look at these wooden ones. You find them on Söder, just next to the Bäckaslöv school.

Capital of glass and US emigrants

by Sjalen

Vaxjo - "the town by the lakes where all the roads meet" is an old market town founded by English bishop Saint Sigfrid and a city where I have always had family and have studied. Swedes don't consider this the most exiting place in the country and it is difficult to have fun here 365 days a year but Växjö nevertheless has some real gems hidden behind the unsurprising High Street (Storgatan) and its pedestrian area and it is picking up since the college was recently given university status. Capital of County Kronoberg (one of three Småland counties) which thousands of people left in the 19th and early 20th century to try to find a better life in for instance the USA and Canada, this is the place where Americans with Swedish ancestors come to do research at the Emigrant House and this is also where you should go if you are interested in glass and you make a tour of the Kingdom of Glass in southeast Småland since the glass museum holds some real treasures. Finally, whilst the city itself might not leave a lasting impression apart from its towering cathedral landmark and many lakes, so will the countryside with castle ruins and picturesque lakeside villages. I also have to say, biased or not, that it is hard to find friendlier people in Sweden - at least in the south.
