Thanks to the short distances in the city, Gothenburg is one of Europe’s premier events cities. It’s a friendly summer city with easy access to the archipelago. The people of Gothenburg are used to looking after their visitors. And we also have Liseberg, the top leisure park in Northern Europe, visited by a large proportion of all Gothia Cup partici- pants. During the Gothia Cup, the city is transformed into a global meeting place with colourful training gear and young people lled with anticipation.
