The southern archipelago of Gothenburg, Köpstadsö(Buycityisland). Pronounced as cheusseu by locals here.

Save on your hotel -

This island is a wonderful little place with old houses from the time of shipowners. On the north side you'll find an old shipyard and along all the tiny roads these shimens old houses.

The island is mentioned in some writings from 1254 AD where the swedish king Birger Jarl, The Norwegian King Hagen Hegenson and the danish king Cristopher in Slaep, near Kungsbacka, agreed on leaving this island to Sweden. You are able to get out here with the ferry from Saltholmen Will take about 15 minutes and is very affordable See more on>>>
