Worship fish and shellfish? Do it in Gothenburg’s Fish Church (Feskekyrka) food market and restaurant. Gothenburg is Sweden’s culinary capital and is jam-packed with fine eateries that don't cost the earth (literally). But if you prefer to spend your cash on a weekend rock-out, blow them on a ticket to the Way Out West music fest in the middle of August. Otherwise, the fantastic cafés, or the Swedish design and fashion boutiques of the cobblestoned Haga quarter would be delighted if you paid them a visit.
