Right in the middle of Norrköping´s city one can fish for trout and salmon weighing in at 10 kg!!! Norrköping City Council yearly release salmon and trout into Motala Ström - The Motala River. The natural inhabitants of Motala Ström are of a varied nature.

Sweden's Manchester gone wild!
I have passed Norrköping so many times on my way to my cottage but always on the train. The few times I've gone by car, we have made a break in the more picturesque Söderköping to the south. The only exceptions to this have been two visits to Kolmården Animal Park to the north of the city, as a child. So many times, we have said that we should take our daughter to Kolmården too since we are so close in summer, when we are at the outer inlet to Norrköping harbour in the next province! However, our own cliffs have been too comfortable. We simply had to take it "en route" instead and it took a popular Swedish childrens cartoon character's birthday celebrations to finally decide on this year. Thanks for getting me to Norrköping Bamse! :-) We based ourselves in the city so we could see more than just the animal park and what a delight it was. I could live here! But I guess I have always known that as I have already applied for jobs previously to be near the cottage and as I grew up in an area where a similar dialect is spoken (Västervik) so I've always felt at home in this province.
Norrköping is known for being Sweden's Manchester and although it has gone the same way as the real McCoy and no longer has many factories in action, the old industrial landscape has been kept and is absolutely fantastic. So good that it is a national heritage. Apart from that, most people of course come for Sweden's only dolphin show - come and have a look!
