Perhaps it is the “small metropolis” feeling, rich in contrasts, that makes so many people feel at home in Växjö. Multicultural, youthful and do ahead. Growing so that it strains at the seams. Despite a high tempo, there is also time for calm and reflection. It’s the contrasts that define the town of Växjö. On the one hand, lively pulse, shopping and entertainment and on the other, charming alleyways, cobblestones and red cottages. There is something to do for both big and small here – from a cathedral with roots in the 12th century to a modern skatepark in the middle of town, from Sweden’s best wine cellar to peaceful fishing trips only a stone’s throw from the main street.
It is easy to discover Växjö. We often say that you can reach everything within 15 minutes. You are close to everything, for example the Linneaus garden, Sweden's Glass Museum, the Swedish Emigrant Institution, and you can easily walk between the city's different sights. On your walk you will almost certainly do some shopping and rest your feet at one of Växjö's many cafés and restaurants. Or just take a pause on one of the benches beside Lake Växjö.

In Växjö international conferences, national Eurovision Song Contest competitions and Swedish Championship finals mix with smaller local events. The modern arena city with stadiums for floorball, ice hockey, football and athletics are all world class. Rich and varied concert and cultural offerings with a number of different festivals in central Växjö contribute to an exciting atmosphere all year around.
Växjö´s many restaurants offer food from all corners of the world. The surrounding lakes, forests and meadows are a huge stockpile for all those who appreciate Småland gastronomy. Some of the restaurants are so good that their trophy cabinets are full of honours from the White Guide and other prominent restaurant guides. But Växjö is also a coffee break town where you are never far away from a classic patisserie. The oldest patisserie was founded in 1876 and is still run today by descendants of the founder, Johan Broqvist. Sweden’s biggest food market is arranged annually in Växjö and the city has been awarded the distinction of being the Gastronomic Capital of the Year, by the Swedish government. When it comes to gastronomic experiences there are few places to match Växjö.
When being in Växjö and Sweden you will learn that fika (“coffee breaks”) is essential. In Växjö you will find old traditional cafés and modern coffee places. The Napoleon pastry (Cream Slice) was born almost 150 years ago at Växjö´s oldest patisserie Broqvists konditori.
