Kalmar has some 65,000 inhabitants and a reputable university.


Linnaeus University is one of Sweden’s newest higher education institutions and was formed when the University of Kalmar and Växjö University merged in 2010. Linnaeus University is located in Kalmar and Växjö. Since 2008, Linnaeus University has been working to gather its facilities in Kalmar in a city integrated way, close to both communications and the sea. Both the university and the surrounding society will become stronger through the natural meeting places that are created in connection to the university. The first stage of the new facilities are estimated to be completed in the new year 2017/2018.



The 2018 Fisu World University Triathlon Championship will be held in the heart of Kalmar.


The race will be stretching throughout the historical town of Kalmar, offering plenty of challenges for the athletes and a great way for the spectators to have a closer encounter experience to triathlon.


Kalmar is a beautiful coastal city surrounded by water and situated in the south east of Sweden. The city was voted as the Summer City of the Year in Sweden 2015, 2016 and 2017, by the readers of the Swedish travel site Reseguiden.se.


Kalmar offers both the opportunities of a large city at the same time as the proximity and charm of a smaller town. Today, Kalmar is a modern city offering a wide variety of experiences, but wherever you go, you will certainly feel the echoes of history.
