The cathedral and University City of Linköping stands 120 miles southwest of the Swedish capital Stockholm. Linköping has a long history but today is a centre for high-tech and software industries. Visitors with a hire car from Linköping can explore popular sights around the city, like the old locks on the Göta and Kinda canals where period steamships still make their way through the leafy countryside. One of the tourist highlights of the area is the Air Force Museum, a collection of aircraft and more than 250,000 objects about flying. The surroundings are typical gentle southern Swedish countryside between scenic waterways including historic canals, Lake Roxen and the winding Stångån River.
