Located in the heart of the city is the glamorous Casino Cosmopol, housing numerous slot machines and multiple blackjack tables among other facilities. The casino is owned by the Swedish government, and all their profits are reinvested into the city—so gamble with a clear conscience knowing that any of your losses will help someone else. The casino is open until the early hours of the morning and is one of the few places that has a late alcohol license. There is also a fine-dining restaurant inside if your appetite picks up. - Christian Tsangarides
