« Boat to Vaxholm | Main | Högalids kyrka »


I got off the boat to Vaxholm to explore while I awaited the next return boat back to the city centre. The town itself is a small town of around 5000 people, sometimes considered the capital of the archipelago.

It is not a large town, though it does have an impressive castle, standing protecting the waterway connecting Stockholm to the Baltic sea. The town is largely made of wooden built houses, with a few modern buildings of other materials.
