In this trip we explore a breathtaking and meditative art of making glass, which has developed in this region of Sweden since 1742. By the end of 18th century, there were 77 glassmaking workshops, more of half of which were located in Småland! Therefore, this part of Sweden the also called “Kingdom of Crystal”. In our one-day trip, we will be visiting one of the most famous glass factories in the world - Kosta Boda Glass workshop and the Kosta Boda Gallery. We will learn about the art of glassblowing, observe real glass blowing, as well as look at some spectacular glass pieces. For those of us who appreciate art of fashion, there will be an opportunity to visit Kosta Outlet shopping mall - impressive in size, and very pleasing in prices!
The next stop on our journey will be the Moose Park. There we will see the largest deer animal in the world - the moose (300-500 kg of weight!), African pygmy goat, horses, pigs and hens! If someone dares to try the moose barbecue, there will be such opportunity at additional cost (60 SEK). Vegetarian options available :)
