Protestant Church

Sittard, Netherlands

The reformed church of Sittard was built in 1680. Although the building is by no means an architectural masterpiece, history can be found in every nook and cranny of the church. The stained glass windows depicting two protestants who were burned at the stake are particularly impressive.

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.
