The beautiful Orebro City or as written in Swedish, Örebro is the Capital City of a Swedish county and a Swedish municipality by the same name.
The city stretches to 43 square kilometres and the entire Orebro Municipality stretches to 1,840 square kilometres.
There are 130,000 inhabitants in the capital City of Orebro / Örebro and 134,725 inhabitants in the Municipality of Orebro. Orebro County is in the heart of Sweden surrounded by Borlange at the north, Motala at the south, Eskilstuna at the east and Karlstad at the west.
It is 200 kilometres away from Stockholm, 300 kilometres away from Gothenburg / another extreme beauty in Sweden and 300 kilometres away from Oslo, the capital city of Norway.
In addition to Dalarna and some other extremely beautiful and romantic places, Orebro is one of 133 historical cities in Sweden.
Not only that, but what makes it unique is the hospitality, great stand-alone locations and trade fairs, well organized cultural events hosted in beautiful theatres and halls, the Swedish smiles that make you feel they are flying on the air and most regarded the new Swedish who immigrated to it from 150 countries in the world.
Because of all these facts, Sweden now has more clean reputation especially in Africa and the Middle East, regardless to some few voices that cannot change the Swedish love into hatred.
Orebro is the natural logistical centre of Scandinavia and the business centre of Orebro city makes it vivid. The fever of conferences and trade fairs explodes now and then inside the beautiful Orebro City and on the land of the trade fairs some few kilometres out of the city.
The Land of the Trade Fairs, Marieberg is a beautiful place about 8.7 kilometres southwest of Orebro and it takes about 13 minutes by the city bus.
There are more than 500 wings in the trade fare, including big Swedish trade companies, Swedish expertises houses, big international companies and restaurants' kings like MacDonald and others. Watch the videos.
The beautiful Orebro City is also a travel centre with well-built cross-country train’s transportation lines, busses and international airport. The Swedish railway lines have good customs regarding customers' services, I have never seen elsewhere.
Money exchange offices like Forex, national banks like Swedbank on Drottninggatan 18 and multi-regional banks like Nordea Bank near it are in the centre of the city with ATMs. It doesn't take more than 5 minutes to reach other banks in the centre of the beautiful Örebro City.
The city has also beautiful restaurants, cafés, snacks, and bars almost in every block in the centre. The centre is also full of supermarkets hosting fashions fairs, perfumes boutiques, saloons, pizzas and Cafés. Among those businesses are brands like IKEA, Meca, Seko, and Atlant. (I got 2 jackets with a smile and $50 down here).
In addition, you will find Princess Potion, Linda Johansson, Vanja Luthman, Perfume Heaven (I almost gone mad after a lady in one of these places and left with only her perfume under my arm and in my memory), Salon Peacock, Lady Tramp Fashion HB and Tella, as long as I remember.
You may take 5 hours to explore the city centre, but luckily, when you get tired, there are many natural beautiful places to relax and recharge in addition to some clean cafés, kiosks, bars and even bookshops and restaurants.
One of the bookshops with a café I prefer is just few metres behind the public library, near the main central street, Forex and MacDonald.
It is not only walking that is enjoyable in the beautiful Orebro City, but cycling is also a pleasure. There are many cycle lanes and cycle parking places near each other and in different spots in the beautiful Orebro City.
You can reach it when you pass Forex to NEC Epson at the next corner on Drottninggatan 27, and take the narrow path at the right corner of NEC Epson turning left. It is on the third corner at the back of NEC Epson.
Alternatively, you can turn right at the corner of Forex to the Restaurang and then take the narrow path at your left. The public Library is few steps onwards.
You reach ICA when you cross the pedestrian near Forex to the buildings in front of Forex. Olof Palmes Torg is very near at the corner of the building in front of Forex.
The beautiful Orebro City is the city of cycles for these reasons. You can hire a low cost bike to tour the city. Just ask any Swedes passing by. They love English, so it is not a problem that you cannot speak Swedish.
It is also the city of beautiful nature and the city of gardens, as there are many gardens, where birds and Swedish ducks duck. I tried even to speak with those beautiful Swedish ducks feeling that ducks of feather duck together ;-) I of course like the other sweet ducks.
I have never seen rich femininity like the Swedes. It speaks itself, easily, smart and intimate with a French flavour. We have two beauties here we knew already for a long time and now, we have the third, the Spanish flavour.
Seriously, I got bombarded by human feelings that make me stayin alive and strong.
Tourist attractions in the beautiful Orebro City are in so many beautiful places. The important tourist attractions are Orebro Castle that date back to the 13th century, Orebro Swamp Water Tower, the museums, the art galleries and the gardens.
The beautiful Örebro City has rich cultural life especially during annual fests, national fests and other occasional events run for some other purposes. Many theatrical shows perform in the County Theatre and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra performs at the Concert Hall.
Theatrical provers also run in small galleries such as the Art Gallery beside Orebro Castle. There are also many sport and leisure activities in the centre of the city, on the surroundings and in Lake Hjalmaren, the 4th largest lake in Sweden.
As a travel centre, the trains and busses link it to Stockholm and other cities and towns in the line. A cross-country line links it to Copenhagen through Malmo and the sea-tunnel between Malmo and Copenhagen.
There are two universities in the beautiful Örebro City, Orebro University and Orebro University Hospital. The first one had been upgraded from an old high secondary school couple of years ago to be one of the best universities in Sweden and it has now 16,000 students and 1,200 staff. The university exchange students from many countries in the world and receive students exchange.
Orebro University Hospital is one of the major specialist hospitals in Sweden. It has one of the best technologies in medicine education and provides Orebro hospital and other hospitals by well-educated medicine doctors.
Orebro Hospital is very clean and good hospital, with good medical care and instance emergency fast services. Other clinics, in the suburbs, such as dentist clinics provide fast and quality dentist clinical services.
The municipal services run with hospitality and deep honest smile in the focus. Individuals do matter to officials, as they know they are there in that place for them, to help them, not to make them suffer even of daily routine.
The same manner dominates the market. There is no trading policy like take it or leave it here. To make your shopping experience enjoyable and to come again, not only the smile that counts, but also the good manner and hospitality that takes Sweden as very important notion to influence customers.
For example, in records and video shop or in a perfume shop, you find great services and as it happens to me, you can get one sample free in addition to the discount with warm wards that say, and this is a gift for you from Sweden in pure English.
The beautiful Orebro City is full of hotels, small names and big brands such as Scandic Grand Hotel, Hotel Gota, Hotel Ibis, Clarion Hotel Orebro, Hotel Storgarden and Plaza Hotel. See beautiful hotels in Orebro.
