Of all close-ups I took, this was the only picture
that showed anything that even remotely resembled a web camera. But I know
it's there somewhere!
The tower makes a solid impression from the foot!
With a sound like in a church!

The province of Södermanland
is an acknowledged abbreviation of Södermanland, even in written form.
Use the pronunciation from “Sir”, with the stress on the first
syllable, and the final “d” hardly audible, and you will surely be
taken for a native “Sörmlänning”.)
||Many authors have tried to capture the essence of Södermanland
in their writing. The most successful attempt was probably by Selma
Lagerlöf, who in The wonderful adventures of Nils Holgersson describes
Södermanland as "The beautiful garden of delights".
The landscape of Södermanland varies a great deal from area to area. It
is a region rich in water, with several rivers and more than one
thousand lakes. The coast is enhanced by a spectacular archipelago, a
paradise for adventurers.
Södermanland is the perfect place to spend a holiday if you are
interested in breathtaking nature panoramas as well as historical sights.
There is a large variety of outdoor and wildlife activity since Södermanland
is the perfect place for "eco-tourism". It is the province for
those who appreciate low-land nature. Södermanland's history is
strongly reflected in all its numerous well-preserved historical remains,
from runic stones through to modern age architecture.
The beautiful archipelago town of Trosa can be found by the
Södermanland coast. An open landscape with living farm districts and
pleasant creeks excells Trosa as a heritage from the 16th century.
Activities such as
fishing, long walks or bicycle rides along the Sörmland track, Canoing
in the Trosa Stream. Or, Why not take a ride out with any of the
archipelago boats, sit back and enjoy the beautiful environment.
Nynäs Castle and Tullgarns Castle is two well-visited excursion
destinations. Guided tours on the castle is an alternative for the
curious. Garvaregården (Tanner House) is today the town museum, also a
place worth a visit if you go to Trosa.
If you're an enthusiastic fisherman, you shouldn't miss the Great
Fishing Day during Ascension Day, when fishermen and -women from all
over Sweden participates in this alliance.
Another national event is the annual mountainbike contest that occurs in
Trosa Market Day is when the whole country's "Knallar" (travelling
merchants) are gathering and putting up their market stalls on the
streets. This is The Day to visit! The second Saturday in June!
The Harwest Market and Christmas Market is arranged every year, even in
less gigantic proportions.
Trosa City Race is one of the biggest events in this archipelago town.
Thousands of runners from all over the world joins this contest and
local holiday with dragon boat rowing and dancing in the harbour.
Trosa is a unique archipelago town that has something to offer to
everyone that wants to enjoy swedish culture and nature.
|| Trosa got its town privilegies in the year
1610 by king Karl IX.
Prior to this the old town three
miles upstream at Trosa Land got its town
privilegies by Karl VIII Knutsson in 1454, on
It has probably been a town on
this place since at least the late 14th century.
Carl von Linné (Carolus Linnaeus), our most
famous botanist, (and certainly not the famous Nobel
prize laureate as a German travel agency highlight
in their advertising) stopped by in Trosa in
the beginning of his journey to the islands Öland
and Gotland in the Baltic Sea, on the 16th of May in
1741, and found a new species of Butterflies, not
even known abroad, as he mentions when he gives it
the name Papilio hexapus, alias divaricatis denticulatis nigris albo punctatis.
I believe this is a Swallowtail, one of 550 known
Or, is it Apollo? :-)
