Right now, Gothenburg is going through some of its biggest transformations ever. Just like when the city celebrated its 300th anniversary, the jubilee is used as a catalyst for city development. Back then, Liseberg Amusement Park, Götaplatsen and several other institutions that we now take for granted were inaugurated. 2023 will be an eventful year but the anniversary will also leave a long term legacy.
The Gothenburg locals have played a great part in the jubilee by contributing with ideas for anniversary projects. For example, the ideas behind the sauna in Frihamnen and the pool in the river came from locals. Other improvements, such as making the Gothenburg Archipelago more accessible and the city greener have close connections to the anniversary.
