Situated on the southeast coast of Sweden, Karlshamn Port borders the Baltic Sea and is the main port in the region. Surrounded by forest and looking out over the Blekinge archipelago, the port is aesthetically one of the most unique and alluring in the world, attracting a growing amount of visitors each year. A naturally beautiful town, Karlshamn aims to remain green both physically and environmentally, with the area keen to maintain the admirably clean environment. Sport also plays a large part in the lifestyle of the residents; football, hockey and sailing clubs all encourage new members to participate on a regular basis.
The harbour area is commonly used to transport tonnes of cargo, making it the sixth busiest port in Sweden in regards to commercial use. The ferry routes for the port span a vast area, covering Klaipeda in Lithaunia, St. Petersburg in Russia and its most frequent crossing to Kiel in Germany. The port is only accessible via road transport, therefore only cars and taxis are the two viable options. There is a taxi rank waiting outside of the train station, which is located fairly close to the port, therefore a fare for the ride shouldn’t cost too much.
The port opens relatively late, not allowing passengers to check in until 3pm, and sailings generally aren’t scheduled until the evening.
