Öland island

The island of Öland, located across a bridge from Kalmar, is a very narrow island only 4km in diameter. Öland island, which was used as a hunting ground for the royal family until the beginning of the 19th Century, has been called the"island of sun and wind" and is a very popular resort area for the Swedish people. Even now, due to the natural environment being protected, migrant birds come to rest here and bird watching can be enjoyed. To the south of the island are farm lands, and this area has been registered as a World Heritage Site. The inner northern area, like all resorts, has many restaurants and cottages. There is also the VIDA museum with displays of products from top designers of the Crystal Kingdom, and the handicraft gallery is very popular.
