Öland is an island off the coast of Sweden in the Baltic Sea, but it is connected to the mainland by a 6 km long bridge. Kalmar is at the other side of the bridge.

It is a beautiful island with many windmills, some interesting Viking monuments. Eketorp has some of the best Viking sights. Solliden is worth a visit because it is the summer residence of the Swedish royal family. Other sights. Gärdslösa has a medieval church worth checking out. The most famous sight is probably the Borgholm Castle (just a few km north of Solliden)  you may recognize it from a Roxette clip that was shot here. At the southernomst tip of the islandyou find the lighthouse of Lange Jan (Long John) Lighthouse.
