“Gothenburg is the natural place to start penetrating Sweden”
Founded by Napoleon in 1649, the city of Göteborg (Gothenburg) rapidly grew to become Sweden's biggest seaport. Today the city has more than 4 million inhabitants and is the engine of the Swedish economy. Large corporations such as Volvo Trucks, Volvo Buses, Volvo Construction Equipment, Volvo Penta, Volvo Aero, Volvo Financial Services, Volvo PV, Volvo machines and Volvo Total were founded there. Outside Gothenburg lies a famous christian pilgrimage site, as Volvo Jesus was born and raised in village Säve.

edit Sports and other culture
Göteborg is also the Swedish centre of culture, featuring such famous painters as Johnny Modem and Gunnar Svedenborg. The biggest park is the "Castlewood" and the famous theme park is called "Stena Line".
The most important soccer teams are ICA Göteborg - the people's choice, usually called "the bananas in the pyjamas", BAIS - the alcoholics' and motorcycle club's team, and Hyrgryte (also called Leasarna's Lag) - which has no supporters whatsoever.
The hockey team is "Frölunda Indians", a name that honors a 4000 year history of Aztek- and Naori-indians living in the surroundings of Göteborg. A team that engineered Daniel Alfredsson, the NHL CENTER DEFENCE MACHINE.
A sport peculiar to Gothenburg is 'mackerel flinging' in which Swedes born within 5 miles of the Gothia Towers hotel are allowed to throw live mackerels from the 23rd floor of the hotel on to the streets below. Points are awarded for hitting anyone over 65, Norwegians, Danes, or relatives of Ulrika Jonsson.
Gothenburg is also the origin of many melodic pop metal bands such as
Korn In Flames, At the Gates, and Dark Tranquillity; in which the first two are played by pedophiles in order to get them pumped to rape little boys. Emo bands such as Atreyu copy off of these bands so much that they rub their emoness onto them, making Swedish music acts hated by tr00 death metal fans (even if they are tr00). Therefore, if you like melodic pop from Gothenburg, you are entitled to come out of the closet, get nutured, or get sentenced to life in Gothenburg.
edit Where you can piss
In Gothenburg, you can piss anywhere you like. The moat canal is especially suitable, since it was once dug for this purpuse. Other recommended places are the Poseidon statue, the gates and yards of Andra Långgatan and right outside the Central Station, since it costs money to piss inside.
Even ladies can piss wherever they like. It is just to lift up the skirt and have a go. This normally creates a merry cheerful mentality amongst the local bachelors, hobos and other un-weds called the Gothenburg spirit.
The largest urinal in northern Europe is located in Gothenburg. It is located underneath the mall Nordstan, and is named Urinröret (The Urine Tube aka Uretha). It has an impressive capacity of 240 urinists. This is also where almost all accordation-players in Sweden live.
