New Älvsborg Fortress by EuroTourData

New Älvsborg Fortress was built around 1660 as the sea fortress to protect the waterway to Gothenburg. During the Scanian War, the fortress participated in the defense of Gothenburg from Danish attacks, and during the last part of the Great Northern War of 1717-1719, the fortress participated in battles with the Danish-Norwegian naval forces.
