I am finally getting some of my Sweden and Denmark images together. So pull up a chair, turn out the lights and take a look Doesn't this remind you of slide shows you were forced to watch at a neighboors house?) 1. One of the many old alleyways in Gamla Stan. Gamla Stan is the oldest part of Stockholm, settled in the early 13th century. 2. View attachment 12140 Part of the front facade of Frederiksborg Slot (castle). Most of the castle was built by Christian IV in the early 17th century. 3. View attachment 12141 One of the many ring forts found on Oland, an Island of the west cost of Sweden. The fort was built by the Vikings in 300 AD and used till 1240. 4. View attachment 12142 he Vasa was to be the the flag ship of the Swedish navy. It was built by King Gustav II and was to be used during the 30 Years War against Poland, Denmark and Latvia. On August 10, 1628 it was launched. But, because it was so top heavy, the Vasa overturned and went straight to the bottom of the Saltsjon river. For 300 years the Vasa sat on the bottom of the river, until it was raised in 1961 and is now housed in the Vasamuseet (museum). 5. View attachment 12143 This is an image of one of five original Viking ships found at the bottom of the Roskilde Fjord in 1962. The ships date back to the 11th century. They were sunk in the Fjord as a way to block other ships from entering the Harbor at Roskilde.
