Questions and answersEditorial /
Baltzar von Platen tells the story of the Göta Canal. "Every time I looked at the map of Sweden I wondered why there was no canal linking the seas to the east and to the west. A canal would facilitate trade and would be good for Sweden's defence. As early as 1808 the British engineer Thomas Telford was in Sweden and helped me stake out the course of the Göta Canal. The task took us 21 days. But it was not until I received letters patent from the King in 1810 that I was able to start building in earnest."
