Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo I know very well and have visited before, but I wanted to look into a few alternatives. When I first visited Sweden, in 1981, it was to see Chelsea play some training matches around the Västerås area. I then enjoyed summer holidays in Västerås in the eighties. Eventually I moved to Västerås from London in 1988. And then I had another spell in Västerås 2002-2004. Nowadays with the direct UK flights and IKEA its really on the map.
What are the house prices like and is there much to do there? Are there any other small cities or large towns that people would recommend? In my early days there 45% of the work force worked for ASEA. My life is in Mora, but I am often in Västerås and still love the town.
