Trystorp is a Swedish estate in Lekeberg. To the south of the manor, there is a nature reserve which is open to the public, with a rich fauna and many old oaks.

The estate was established by Biskop Kort Rogge in 1495, who bought land in the area. The Livonian nobleman Henrik von Falkenberg was subsequently awarded Trystorp as a fief. In the 16th century, King Charles IX of Sweden was a frequent guest at Trystorp.

The Falkenberg family owned the estate from 1603 to 1816, when it was sold to publisher N.M. Lindh. His heirs sold the estate to businessman Julius Lindström in 1868. From 1914 to 1918, it was owned by Christopher de Paus. In 1937, it was acquired by Astrid Ziebach de Jonquiéres, whose heirs still own it. It was announced for sale in 2009.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
