Gothenburg Receives its Own Wheel

Gothenburg has now received a new tourist attraction, its very own "Wheel of Gothenburg". It is placed by the city's Opera house by the Göta Älv river and was taken into operation on Saturday.
With its 60 metres it is about half the size of the London Eye. It has got 42 glass-enclosed gondolas with seats for 8 people. A journey lasts 3-4 turns and takes 12-15 minutes.

And as citizen's of Sweden's second biggest city, the gothenburgers will try to match the Royal Wedding between Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling on the 19th of June. On that very day the wheel is turned into a Wedding Wheel, as part of a multi-wedding celebration, where 10-20 couples are expected to take part.
