Sweden's Western Walking City

Gothenburg is a great city for walking. It's city center is largely encircled by the Göta river and canals. Cobblestone-lined pedestrian streets cross the area in different directions. I couldn't help beginning my post on walking with a photo of bicycles. The bikes look sturdy with well-padded sets, great for riding on cobblestones, but I chose to walk. So did everybody else. Plenty of public transit options are available as well. This gallery mostly captures more mundane aspects of Gothenburg and gives a more real feel for the place.
