Karlshamn, Sweden

Exhibition about salmons

People come from near and far to enjoy the angling, but also to experience the area with the Kungsforsen falls in central Mörrum, the restaurant and the Aquarium next to the exhibition. Here you can meet the mighty salmon without wading into the rapid waters and you can experience the history that has made the Mörrum river a Shangri-La for fishing enthusiasts around the world. Salmon fishing in Mörrum has a very long tradition, with royal connections since time immemorial. It was first described in 1231 in Waldemar II’s land register. Fishing spears were used long ago for catching salmon on the river. These were gradually replaced by salmon tubs, hoop nets, salmon seines and salmon nets, which were in use as late as the mid 1960’s. Today, however, all commercial salmon fishing has ceased, but the old permanent fishing areas at Kungsforsen and Hönebygget, can still be seen. On certain days during the summer and autumn, the hoop net is used in the time-honoured way, but now for the purpose of fishing for salmon breeding. The only other salmon and sea trout fishing allowed is angling. Opening hours: Daily Apr-Sep 9-17

Alice Springs

Alice Springs, or 'The Alice', lies romantically in the heart of Australia, and it is unofficially considered as the Outback's capital. While it was regarded as a 'dead heart' during colonial times, thanks to the surrounding barren landscapes, today both residents and visitors recognise the physical and spiritual importance of Australia’s Centre, and it indeed is beating alive with Aboriginal traditions and sacred sites, a vibrant local art culture with a fascinating pioneering history, and for sure incredible landscapes still. Alice Springs is one of the most interesting places on the continent, and most people agree on that you have not seen the Outback at all until you will have seen Alice for once.
