Drottningskärs Kastell

Drottningskärs kastell (citadel) was largely built during the last decade of the 17th century and is considered one of Sweden’s foremost defence constructions, a complete and well preserved fortress from Sweden’s period as a great power. The citadel has a large castle keep in granite with gun deck, powder magazine and quarters. It has four bastions named after the queens Maria, Christina, Hedvig and Ulrica. Since 1895 Drottningskär has not played an active part in the Swedish defence system.
 You can get to Drottningskär citadel all year round via the car ferry to Aspö. The archipelago boats stop here during the summer. There is also a restaurant and café, open during summer.
Kungsholms Fort

Kungsholms Fort

This fort has defended the entrance to Karlskrona for more than 300 years. Kungsholms Fort is still operational within the Swedish defences. The remarkable round harbour has become somewhat of a symbol for Karlskrona’s status as a World Heritage site. Exotic plants from all corners of the globe flourish under the protection of the fort’s walls. They have been brought here over many years on vessels returning from distant voyages.
