About the Kingdom of Glass
Here, to a small area in Kronobergs and Kalmar counties in Småland, i.e. Emmaboda, Lessebo, Nybro and Uppvidinge municipalities, many visitors come every year. Many return time and time again. It is easy to understand why. Watching the red-hot glass mass transform into brittle crystal or robust bowls is a spectacle you never tire of. But even outside the warmth of the glass cabins there is much to experience. Here you will find both cultural history, lots of nature experiences as well as a large selection of shopping and other activities. Why not fish in one of the many lakes, ride a dressin bike on one of the old railways or take a course to learn the basics of glassblowing yourself.
