Question: What are the seven wonders of Sweden?

What are the 7 wonders of Sweden? And who votes for the 7 wonders of Sweden?

Answer: The Seven Wonders of Sweden really do exist. In mid-2007, among all the talks about the new “7 wonders of the world”, the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet called on all readers to vote for the favorite wonders of their country. Failing to make the “7 Wonders of the World” list, more than 80,000 Swedes voted and proudly selected the following wonders to be the ” Seven Wonders of Sweden “:

  1. The Göta Kanal: With the majority of the votes, the Göta Canal came in first. This 150 mile canal was built in the early 1800s and is very popular. The canal runs from Gothenburg on the west coast to Söderköping on the east coast of Sweden.
  2. City wall of Visby: second, is the city wall of Visby, which was erected in the thirteenth century and spread throughout the city, 2 miles long. This location is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  3. The War Ship Vasa: The Vasa was built by King Gustav Adolf II in 1628 and is a major attraction in Stockholm. The king made his ship too shallow and it had major design flaws. On its virgin voyage, the Vasa capsized and sank just 900 feet from shore where the public was watching. See it at the Vasa Museum!
  1. The ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjarvi / Kiruna: The ICEHOTEL in the Swedish region of Lapland is the biggest attraction in the area. Originally, the creators began to build a simple igloo, which later became the elaborate and now famous ICEHOTEL. This place is made only from the waters of the nearby Torne River and melts every summer!
  2. The Turning Torso: Swedish wonder number five is the Turning Torso, a skyscraper in Malmö, Sweden. The tower is 54 stories tall and over 600 feet tall, with a unique design based on twisted bodies. The Turning Torso is one of the tallest buildings in Scandinavia and is the most popular landmark in Malmö.
  1. The Oresund Bridge – The bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden is ranked 6th. The world famous Oresund Bridge has 4 lanes, 2 rail tracks and is almost 28,000 feet (8,000 meters) long connecting two countries. It crosses the sea supported by cables.
  2. The Globe: Last but not least, the Swedes considered that the Globa Arena in Stockholm should be included in the 7 wonders of Sweden. Found in the south of Stockholm, Globen (The Globe) is the largest “round” spherical building in the world. It is highly visible from all sides and hosts sporting and musical events throughout the year.
