Gothenburg is a famous port city in Sweden. It is situated by the Kattegat, on the west coast of Sweden, near the Gota Canal and off the north part of Denmark. The city has a beautiful landscape and is located at the mouth of Gota River, the largest river in Sweden. A substantial amount of goods of foreign trade are distributed from this city, which consists of a perspective and busy picture of Gothenburg in a whole year. Besides, Gothenburg is centrally located between Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo, and has over 450 lanes to connect the rest of the world, which makes it an essential transportation hub for the north Europe. The most developed area, also known as the industrial center of the north Europe, lies within 300 kilometers of Gothenburg. Therefore, Gothenburg is called “the Liverpool in Sweden” and "the window of the west Sweden".
