The guidebook shows you the best sights in Gothenburg and on the West Coast that every visitor should see. It also directs readers to outdoors and indoors activities that are popular in the region.

In this 110-page compact guide, Rick Steves covers the essentials of Stockholm, including City Hall, Old Town, and the Vasa Museum, which houses Europe's best-preserved old warship. You'll get Rick's firsthand advice on the best sights, eating, sleeping, and nightlife, and the maps and self-guided tours will ensure you make the most of your experience. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves Snapshot guide is a tour guide in your pocket.
Rick Steves Snapshot guides consist of excerpted chapters from Rick Steves European country guidebooks.

They include good-value hotel and restaurant recommendations, with no introductory information (such as overall trip planning, when to go, and travel practicalities).
