SWEDEN

Swedenl

Stockholm, Sweden.

 

 

Sweden, land of the Vikings and beautiful blondes is a Scandinavian with a rich history and culture. The Viking age was 800 to 1050 AD and most of the stories about the Viking age where written by monks as they could write. The stories about the Viking history are not always as violent as some might believe but fact is that the same monks where robbed of their gold by the Viking raiders.

 

Fact is also that the Vikings where the first who discovered America but because of the many Indians tribes who where seeing them as intruders many of the Vikings lost their lives in battle. Still I believe that some may have survived the battle as the Minnesota Vikings are one of the popular National Football League teams in the USA. And seeing some of the sexy cheerleaders pictures on the NFL Vikings website with long blond hair then this might be true.

 

Also there is a Viking brewing company who have chosen the name in honor of the owners Scandinavian heritage. I discovered that not only in the USA but also in Sweden itself they have Viking beer and they come in big cold glasses or in a 5 Liter barrel which can be placed on the table. Except barrels of cold beer and sexy blond girls with long hair Stockholm has also some interesting places to visit. I personally recommend the Drottningholm Slottsteater, which is an impressive 18th century theatre and part of the royal domain, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Kungliga Slottet which is the palatial residence of the Swedish Royal family.

 

 

Skansen is the open air museum of the traditional Swedish life, its also the oldest museum of it's kind in Europe. In the town Uppsala you can find the biggest cathedral in Scandinavia and its only one hour by car from Stockholm.


Also you should visit the Vasa Museum where you can find a well preserved 17th century warship called "De Vasa" which is actually the only 17th century warship worldwide left. Also Vaxholm which is an idyllic touristy town with a old castle just one hour from the city of Stockholm.
