1. Ancient Stronghold of Gripeberg

Show sight on map

Gripperberg is a small town of farm village parish bills. The foreland slope, about 200 × 90 m (about 20 ft) large, lies on the slopes of slender inland mountains along a steep groove in the west, northeast and east. Below the elevation there are lakes and wetlands. The boundary of the facility has clear walls in the north and south, and more sporadic walls in the west. In addition to the visible rubble, there is a large-scale construction of coherent, small, low rock deposits, located below the ground. According to archaeological investigations, the facility appears to have been built mainly during the Bronze Age, during 1630-410 (f). Previous studies assessed on the basis of existing traditions and knowledge consistently viewed all citizens as the young Iron Age and interpreted it as a refuge or defence facility. Instead, Gripperberg is interpreted as an election facility, used in the context of cultural, religious or ceremonial events. Parts of the factory may also be reused in historical periods. Since the late Stone Age, the area around the environment and the central area has been continuously inhabited, and the area is very prosperous. However, within a radius of 2 kilometers around the city, there is no known departure. Perhaps, Gripperberg represents the common ground between different residential units in the Bronze Age.

2. Växjö Domkyrka

Växjö Cathedral is a cathedral in Växjö, Sweden. It is the seat of the Bishop of Växjö within the Church of Sweden. According to legend, the cathedral was founded by Saint Sigfrid of Sweden. The first stone church on the site, parts of which are incorporated into the current cathedral, was built in the 1160s. The cathedral has been much altered over time, and its appearance today is largely the result of a far-reaching restoration carried out in the 1950s under the guidance of architect Kurt von Schmalensee. Växjö Cathedral is a hall church with a western tower and a square choir. It was built on a location which was probably used as a marketplace during pre-Christian times. Very few of the cathedral's furnishings have survived from earlier centuries; most of the works of art adorning the cathedral date from the 20th or 21st centuries and many of them are made of glass.
