Kalmar is located along the beautiful southeast coast of Sweden which is very popular in the summer season due to its warm and sunny climate and location near the Baltic Sea. The cultural is rich and the old city has a rich history (one example being the Kalmar Castle dating back from the 12th century).
Kalmar is a very popular summer destination and has been voted to the best summer city of Sweden several years. Every summer the city is filled with music, sports and events that makes the inhabitants and tourists come together. Kalmar has lots of big events to offer you either as a partipicipent or beeing a supporter cheering together with all the other people who are watching admirably at the atlethes. Ironman, Swimrun and OCR are just a few of the events which are taking place every year. In the wintertime you will find places for cross-country skiing in our county as well as possibilities for alpine skiing within an hour from Kalmar.
Kalmar County Hospital lies in the south of County Kalmar and nicely overlooking the Baltic Sea, which means you are working and living in beautiful nature surroundings. The Hospital has all kinds of specialities and it’s a teaching hospital for both medicine and nurse students. With only the Ölands Bridge away you’ll find the popular island Öland with many beaches and idyllic places to visit.
