The naval dockyard in Karlskrona is on the UNESCO world heritage list and one of the world’s most unique naval historic sites. The thing is that the naval dockyard is not only a historical site but is still the centre of the Swedish navy. This is the place where Swedish sailors have been trained for almost 350 years, where ships has been designed and build, ropes have been cut and people have worked side by side. This dockyard is a place where geniuses worked and can best be described as the Silicon Wally of the 1800s century. A place where excellence gathered, working with what, at the time, was the coolest things - shipping and the Navy.
Listen to stories from back then, from when the first hull hall was built and how Karlskrona got one of the world’s first dry docks outside the English Channel. Why rope makers walked backwards most of their working life and how the basins from the closed sewage treatment plant for the city of Karlskrona became exercise pools for the navy dive training.
