The town of Norrköping lies at the outflow of the Motalaström into the Bråvik, an inlet on the Baltic which extends inland for some 50km/30mi. The Bråvik forms a natural boundary between the wooded region of Kolmård to the north and the fertile arable country of Vikboland to the south ... More Norrköping is a busy industrial town (metalworking, textiles) and an important port.
A nice way to get around in Norrköping is with the yellow trams. Tickets or cards can be bought onboard but the price is twice as high compared to if you buy the ticket or card beforehand in a kiosk, supermarket or similar. You can even pay by SMS to avoid the 50% surcharge when paying cash on the tram or bus.
There are lots of shops on the main street Drottninggatan and nearby streets. Especially interesting are the shopping malls Linden, Domino and Spiralen at Drottninggatan.

Swedish is the national language of Sweden, but you will find that people, especially those below the age of 70, also speak English very well - an estimated 89% of Swedes can speak English.
112 is the phone number to dial in case of fire, medical or criminal emergency.
