King Carl Gustaf aboard the Götheborg

Replica East India Trader Arrives in China

The Götheborg, a reproduction of an 18th century Swedish sailing ship, has arrived in China and is sailing up the Pearl River on its way to Canton.

The most recent arrivals onboard are Sweden’s King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who are starting an official visit to China, along with a large business and trade delegation. It’s the first Swedish state visit to the world’s most populous country in 25 years.

The Götheborg left the Swedish west coast port of Gothenburg in October.
