bro kapell (2)

Art on the wall in Bro Chapel. A fell (Swedish "fjäll") is sort of a mountainous tundra, so high that trees won't be able to live and prosper above what's called the tree line. Artist Kerstin Johansson has created this weave with inspiration from autumns in northern Sweden.

honey, meet me in the ruin

St. Per Church in Sigtuna was destroyed by fire in the 17th century and has remained a ruin ever since. I could hear two individuals talking in there. You can see them.

ericsson tower tube

This is a Tower Tube. According to Ericsson, it is an innovative construction that houses base stations and antennas, fully encapsulating them in an aesthetic, energy-efficient and low environmental impact tower. Inside the 40-meter tower is all the equipment needed to provide cell phone coverage within an area.

östra ryds kyrka (2)

According to historical records, a bishop's visit occurred at Östra Ryd Church in the year 1303. I wonder what the church looked like back then.
