Also plenty of exciting food related events take place in the city throughout the year. Foodies should not miss the Food Walk – a card that takes you to through the local food scenery and lets you try out the city’s best flavors on the plate.
Just outside the city you will find the world’s biggest and for sure one of the most beautiful Archipelagos of the world, with over 40.000 islands and skerries.
