Vetlanda is a country market town in the southern Swedish highlands about 6 miles from the Baltic coast and almost equi-distant from the three major Swedish cities, Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg, which are each 2 miles away. Like many Swedish towns it stands next to a river and the lakes Grumlan and Norrasjön. Hiring a car in Vetlanda is the best way to tour these outlying areas. One of the best spots to aim for is Ädelfors, 12 miles east. A beautiful stone house here houses the acclaimed mining museum which includes a collection of 7, minerals.
