Address: Kungsgatan 1, S-392 33 Kalmar

The history of this legendary castle stretches back over 800 years. Its present appearence dates from the 16th century, when the Vasa kings rebuilt it in the style of a Renaissance palace, with furnishings in the continental manner.

The castle then saw its most glorious period as a stronghold of royal power, although it had already played an important role in Scandinavian politics, particularly as the meeting place for the signing of the Kalmar Union in 1397.
