Gävle

Gävle is a small port city on the east coast of Sweden, notable for its iron exports (from areas like Högbo). Now, though, there is an overwhelming smell of coffee roasting pervading the town.

Skansen animals at midsummer

While the people were all off enjoying Midsummer we snuck off to see the animals. Its quite unusual to get to see them at dusk like that (midnight on midsummer isn't dark in Stockholm).

Rösaring

Beyond Låssa Church lies the remains of the ancient settlement of Rösaring - I originally found it when I was visiting Låssa but had to return the hire car so didn't have time to explore properly, so had been meaning to return.
"The Rösaring area houses many unusual remains from the Bronze Age and the Viking Age. For instance, you can see several grave fields from the Iron Age, a stone labyrinth and a processional or ceremonial road.
The location of the site high up on a ridge, with a good view in several directions, suggests that it was important and central to the district."

Trosa, the real thing

I went to Trosa before, but it seems I didn't find the centre. Its a pretty port town with a river leading to the sea.
