Gustav II Adolf

Gothenburg was founded in 1621 by King Gustav II Adolf. The King realised that it would be good to have an established port town where the river Göta Älv drains, hence where Gothenburg is situated today. The statue of Gustav II Adolf , on the sqaured named after him, is supposed to portray the young King pointing out the place where the town was going to be founded.
