Beautiful Country

Share it Please
Sweden is such a beautiful country.  There's so much water here; so many lakes, rivers and streams.  And the water is so clear.  There isn't as much pollution here.  There are flowers and trees everywhere.  Even in the middle of cities.  The following photos were all taken by my Mother-In-Law Veronika Westman. 







There's history everywhere you look.  Like this circle of runestones.  They stand in a circle and have runes carved into them.  I've heard it called a Judges Circle with the claim that in ancient times they gathered there to make important decisions.  But the leading theory is that it is a burial mound.


There are old churches throughout Sweden.  I need to get some photos of more of them, but here are a few Churches from this general area.  These churches are beautiful inside as well.  I wish I had some interior photos to share with you.  Many of these churches were built as long ago as the 1300's. 





I will share a few more photos from time to time.  There are so many beautiful old buildings here.    If you ever get a chance to visit Sweden, I highly recommend it!

    1. There are old churches all over around here. Most are still in use, but there are also some that are in ruins. There are also a lot of castles and castle/fortress ruins.
