Podlastva Monastery

Budva, Montenegro

Podlastva Monastery was mentioned for the first time in 1417, and the Code of Grbalj was adopted there in 1427. In the past, it was the spiritual and political centre of Grbalj. Next to the church, dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, there are residential quarters, which previously included a school.

The monastery suffered serious damage in the earthquake of 1979, and subsequent archaeological explorations revealed that an early Christian basilica could have been on this location in the 5th or 6th centuries.A legend has it that the Serbian king Lazar, a nephew of Tsar Dusan, was born here.

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.
