Kosta Boda offer old tradition glass blowing that is open to the public, it is a great experience to understand the artistic background to the beautiful glass pieces that is also offered for sale at the Kosta Boda glass shop located in the same location.

My husband and I visited both Kosta and Bosda recently. The kostaboda shop is located in Kosta and offers dramatic discounts. There are also displays of glassblowing and the opportunity to make your own. A fun day out!

Kosta Boda was our first stop on a long day of touring in the Kingdom of Glass. It's a big place, with both Kosta Boda and Orrefors retail outlets, a cafe, a gallery, the glass blowing hot room and a somewhat out-of-place factory outlet mall...More
