    Plenty of shade and seating on the steps in the evening. Great to see family and friends meet up. Train station across the road and the river runs beside the building.

    The guided tour in English is well worth the admission of 6 euros. Very Regal and full of history, similar but a bit smaller than Royal Albert Hall, London. Also the theatre has a lift with access to all floors for the less mobile.

    Frösö Runestone

    Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

    Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
