Kalmar and Surrounding Area
Kalmar with its surroundings truly is the perfect place to be if you want to enjoy the Swedish summer. Kalmar has been voted "Summer City of the Year" both 2016 and 2015, in a national travel guide competition. There are numerous places to visit and events to attend – from culture, history and music to nature, recreation and sports. Did you know Kalmar is one of few cities in the world hosting the Ironman Triathlon?
Kalmar is a town dating back to the Middle Ages, situated on the beautiful southeast coast of Sweden. Although Kalmar today is a modern town, with more than 60,000 inhabitants, it has been able to keep its old charm. The university buildings and student accommodation in Kalmar are spread throughout the town and are well integrated with the historical surroundings – making students feel part of the town.
The close proximity to the Baltic Sea leaves its impression on life in Kalmar. Smaller beaches and places to go swimming are dotted around the town centre. The island of Öland offers spectacular nature reserves and top class beaches with miles of white sand and is well worth a visit
