Tibrandsholm Castle Ruins

Krokom, Sweden

The history of Tibrandsholm is a mystery in Swedish history. The first written record date from 1402, when Margaret I of Denmark ordered to demolish it. The castle was probably owned by castle steward Tibrand. He belonged perhaps to Victual Brothers who fought against the Kalmar Union. In the 17th century during Swedish-Denmark wars Tibrandsholm was a soldier camp and execution place. There are also remains of Bronze, Iron and Viking Age settlements around Tibrandsholm.

Peace Palace

The Peace Palace (Vredespaleis) is an administrative building and often called the seat of international law because it houses the International Court of Justice (which is the principal judicial body of the United Nations), the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Hague Academy of International Law, and the extensive Peace Palace Library. In addition to hosting these institutions, the Palace is also a regular venue for special events in international policy and law. The Palace officially opened on 28 August 1913, and was originally built to provide a symbolic home for the Permanent Court of Arbitration, a court created to end war which was created by treaty at the 1899 Hague Peace Conference.
