Собор прекрасен! Но почему он открыт только 1 час в неделю для простых смертных??!) .. Хотелось бы в нём больше проповедей,лекций, других мероприятий...)...

Kohtuullisen hieno mutta hieman kolkko minun makuuni... Mutta niinhän nuo tämän kauden luterilaiset kirkot tuppaavat olemaan.

Kaunis kirkko erikoisella rakennushistorialla.

Open one hour per day. Not very acceptable.

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.
