Photographer's Note

The last time that i were in Gothenburg, I had the chance to take a walk in a cold night of winter. I liked atmosphere, people and landscapes. I made this photo after the dinner in the zone close to the river Göta älv.

Gothenburg is a city and municipality on the west-coast of Sweden, in the County of Västra Götaland. As of 2005, the population amounted to 485,000 in the actual city and 872,000 in the metropolitan area making it the second largest city in Sweden, after Stockholm. Gothenburg is the seat of residence for the county, which itself is located in the historical province of Västergötland.

Situated on the western coast by Kattegatt, an arm of the North Sea, at the outlet of the river Göta älv and the Göta Canal. The Gothenburg Metropolitan Area extends to the municipalities of Ale, Härryda, Kungälv, Lerum, Mölndal, Partille, Stenungsund, Tjörn, Öckerö in Västra Götaland County and Kungsbacka in Halland County.

Museums include art (Gothenburg Museum of Art), design and handcrafts (the Röhss Museum), sea history, natural history, science, East India, and the Museum of World Culture inaugurated in 2004. The Göteborg Botanical Garden is considered to be one of the most outstanding botanical gardens in Europe. The amusement park Liseberg located in the central part of the city, is the largest in Scandinavia, and among the most popular attractions in Sweden. Next to Liseberg is the science discovery centre Universeum. The central city and the harbour can be viewed from the The Gothenburg Lookout. From wikipedia
