Häädemeeste Lutheran Church

Häädemeeste, Estonia

The Lutheran church of Häädemeeste was completed in 1884, only couple of years later than the Häädemeeste Orthodox church. The head of building project was Reinhold Stael von Holstein, the owner of Uulu manor.

The nature stone church in historicist-eclectic style is enlivened by red brick details and two rows of windows with sharp arches on the upper ones and segmented arches on the lower. The altarpiece is painted by Englishman Allan Ramsay in 1881.

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.
