The Kingdom of Crystal
Experience 13 glassworks in the Kingdom of Crystal
A fascinating spectacle in the smellties where dexterous glassblowers mould glowing masses into leaf-thin wine glasses and colourful, scintillating art. The world’s most beautiful glass in exhibits and glassworks museums. And on top of that, delightful finds in the glass shops! Surrounded by enchanted forests and thousands of lakes, the Swedish glassworks lie close together. Within only a few hours distance, you encounter 13 glassworks between Växjö and Nybro – some as world-renowned as Orrefors, Boda, and Mats Jonasson Målerås.
The Kingdom of Crystal Pass makes the visit both simpler and more fun. The special card gives you free tours and admittance to smelltries, discounts when you try to blow glass yourself, special offers, and lots of discounts on lodging, restaurants, and other attractions.
