I've lived four years in Gothenburg and can compare that city to Stockholm. And Gothenburg falls flat on it's ass on almost every category. They do have a very good music scene, just as Stockholm does. They also have good sports traditions in for example handball and football as well.
Hehe, funny you should say that because one could easily say that Gothenburg is importance on the international stage too is much larger than its size. And could argue that it's on par with and even ahead of Stockholm in advertising and medicine.
