I just found out that Karlskrona is a World Heritage site! Here’s what I found from the World Heritage website:
“Karlskrona is an exceptionally well preserved example of a European naval base, and although its design has been influenced by similar undertakings it has in turn acted as a model for comparable installations. Naval bases played an important part during the centuries when the strength of a nation’s navy was a decisive factor in European power politics, and of those that remain from this period Karlskrona is the most complete and well preserved”.

How awesome. I really should bring you guys to the principal sites in this World Heritage town. =D
