In recent years, Gothenburg and the West Coast have become a top spot for foodies. World-class seafood, award-winning restaurants, and a magnificent coastline are drawing international visitors in ever-increasing numbers. Gothenburg, or as it's known in Sweden, Göteborg, is the country's second city, yet very different in character to its faraway big brother, Stockholm. Gothenburg's citizens are extremely proud of their city, and an often intense rivalry exists between Stockholm, in the north, and its southerly counterpart. The climate is more temperate, the al fresco dining starts a little earlier in the year, and all-in-all Gothenburg has a more European feel than the Swedish capital some 467 kilometers northeast.
