General Information

Skansen Kronan is a fort in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden. The fort was built in the second half of the 17th century. It was built in anticipation of a Danish attack on the city of Gothenburg from the south. Skansen Kronan has 4-5 metre thick walls that were built with granite, gneiss and diabase; it was also fitted with 23 guns which were never used as the fort never came under attack. In more recent times the fort was a museum but it is now used for private conferences and parties.
