The park is located in the historical province of Västergötland just in between Sweden’s two largest lakes, Vänern and Vättern. It was established back in 1983 and is approximately 20 km2 in size.

Top five vegan restaurants gothenburg

Gael Greene once said:  Great food is like great sex. The more you have the more you want. Who doesn’t want either of that?! Today we’ll just focus on food though. Delicious food that we found at vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Gothenburg, Sweden, to be precise. During our stay in Gothenburg, we’ve had the pleasure to eat at a few great vegan restaurants, food trucks and a kind of snack-bar I think best describes it. We’ve come across some real gems! Not only are the types of food so dissimilar in each of them, the establishments themselves are too.…
