What people say

Lived here for a few months. Can't really think of anything very positive or negative about this place except that I can't remember a single nice meal. The whole experience was pretty "meh". As pretty much every Swedish city it is pedestrian-friendly, safe, and clean. But then again, I did not find it particularly nice to explore the city nor its parks. I much prefer the similar-sized city Örebro which is just one hour away by car or train.
