Once you've fully explored Herrljunga, why not check out the nearest regional city. Boras is 25 miles (40 kilometers) away and features visitor attractions like Boras Art Museum, Knalleland Shopping Center and Stadsparksbadet Water Park.

For those leading a fast-paced life, the perfect vacation often means finding great spots to relax. When it's time to unwind, do as the locals do and have a go at shore fishing or cycling.
Sometimes the difference between a true traveler and a run-of-the-mill tourist is a little appreciation of the local language, so why not take the time to memorize a number of simple Swedish phrases before you head off. "Vill du dansa med mig?" is a good example. It means "Would you like to dance with me?" And, for "Where are you from?", you can say "Varifrån kommer du?" Don't be shy, just give it a go!
As you finish your break, pack up your backpack and wish Herrljunga a fond Hej då (farewell).
