You find the tourist office at Västra Esplanaden 7. In the tourist shop you get help and the tourists guides provide you with the help you need. You also find many brochures here for free. Including maps too, also free.
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.
Any great event in Växjö is celebrated in Stortorget and if it is big enough, then the County Director "landshövdingen" takes part in the celebrations and welcomes celebrities to his/her residence, the great 19th century palace in the square, so typical for county capitals in Sweden. The balcony here has for instance seen Olympic medallist and local hero Carolina Klüft celebrated in style when returning from Athens. Never mind that Carolina's partner recently made her leave Växjö for Karlskrona, she will always be as local as the tennis stars who have also left.
