You can now buy the new Swedish stamps that this year mark Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary with well-known sights from the city. One of the chosen motifs is Transdev subsidiary Styrsöbolaget’s ship Fröja, which has connected Gothenburg with the archipelago since the 1980s.
We are very proud and grateful that Fröja was chosen to adorn this year’s new Sweden stamps. It shows how important archipelago traffic is for the people of Gothenburg. We have been around for almost 100 years and are part of residents’ everyday lives and the city’s identity. A nice way to send a part of Gothenburg to your loved ones.
Bertil Pevantus, CEO of Styrsöbolaget
In addition to the ship Fröja, there are also Ullevi, Hisingsbron, the Port of Gothenburg and Röda Sten on the new stamp series Göteborg 400. The sights have been selected in collaboration with a local cultural association, which in 2020 collected residents’ favorite places and buildings.
More about the ship Fröja:
Fröja is owned by Transdev subsidiary, Styrsöbolaget and connects Gothenburg with the archipelago. Fröja is 29.19 m long, 7.72 m wide and the speed is 12.5 knots. It can carry a maximum of 382 passengers and has 200 seats in salons.
