This morning we had the airberlin winner tickets to our Göteborg paper chase in the mailbox and thought that it would be cool to publish the correct answers. So, here we go, 800 years of history in a nutshell:
Yes, you are right! The VIKINGS lived in the area now known as Göteborg.
You guessed right again! The craftsmen came from THE NETHERLANDS.
DENMARK is considered the most happy country in the world, but there have apparently been some harder times!
The Dutch had so much influence on Göteborg, that their language was nearly considered as official language. Göteborg shared in its early days the same city plan as JAKARTA.
Göteborg is Gothenburg, and that’s it! Or is it Giöthenborg (1605)? Or rather Gutenborgh (1619)? What about Göttenborgisch (1621)? One city, many names!
This one’s so easy! The name even tells! Wrong, the correct answer is: CHINA
This gratuitous man came from SCOTLAND.
AMERICA, the land of opportunity, at least for nearly a million Swedes!
The second Gothenburg was founded in NEBRASKA. Sure, why bother with the nice weather in Florida…
10) LITTLE LONDON is the place to be, at least for all the Britons that left their home island.
We leave the history behind us, because ARTSCAPE starts after one month. Enough time to book our own flights and take a look at the city between past and future!
