Gustavsvik is the name of a bath-complex located a few minutes south of Örebro center. It has long been a favourite of families with children. Here is an "adventure bath", outdoor bathing facilities with a sand beach, a realxation area and more.
However, during the spring of 2003 the bath has been subject to repeated closures due to persistent bacteria in the waters.
Good idea to check before planning a trip here, or you may be in for a nasty surprise...!

If you get the chance you should go camping. One of my favourite nights was when a friend of mine took me up to the near by hills and forrests for an outdoor bbq and berry picking. My one regret was that I didn't take my camera with me. Sitting on a cliff top above a still lake, surrounded by forrests with a crackling fire near by is my idea of a good night out in Sweden.
Go into the country as Sweden is a country-country (hmm, sounds stupid, but is true). The hills, the fields, the forests and especially the thousands of lakes, make Sverige to a natural paradise where you can hike for miles and not meet a living soul (except that big moose, a little beaver and - in summertime) the magificent flowers that blossom everywhere. The Swedish hospitality is one that still leaves me in disbelieve. The Swedes will - without hesitation take you in there home, give you shelter and a nice meal. Maybe next day they will drive you where you want to go to (in their Saab or Volvo).
Beautifully situated on the banks of the River Svartån in the centre of Örebro is the little wooden village of Wadköping. The village consists of a collection of ancient buildings from Örebro and the surrounding countryside, and was opened in 1965. There are 18th-century timbered buildings in traditional red, and lovely bright 19th-century wooden houses which have all been moved to this site in the City Park, along with two museum buildings – the King’s House (16th century) and Cajsa Warg’s House (17th century).
Have a visit to Järle railway station. This is the oldest railway station in Sweden, built in 1854. During the summers you still can take a steam train from Järle to Nora. The place Järle can be found north of Örebro.
Have a visit to Dylta Bruk. On the photo you can see the lovely clock-tower built in 1714, the only thing that still remains of the old church. Close to the clock-tower (not on the photo) there are a mansion which is the main building, built in 1740, and rebuilt in 1840.
Dylta Bruk can be found North of Örebro.
