Svealand Travel Guide : The Birthplace of Sweden. Hrsg.: Turtle Travel Edition
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikivoyage or other free sources online. This area, the birthplace of Sweden, offers the visitor much evidence of the region s long history, including rune stones so plentiful you re likely to stumble over a few. Pre-Viking burial mounds in Gamla Uppsala light the imaginations of myth-builders and history buffs. There s also the old mine in Falun, which accidentally provided the means for all those little cottages dotting the landscape to be painted red. And in Mora, the definitive Swedish king s path towards the crown is still retraced today, by thousands of skiers each year in the Vasaloppet. Drenched in history but never stifled by the past, Uppsala has the party vibe of a university town to balance out its large number of important buildings and general atmosphere of weighty cultural significance. It s a terrific combination, and one that makes the town both fun and functional, not to mention very rewarding for the interested traveller. This book offers information on Svealand and its most notable places.
