Well curated group of buildings and information. A real snapshot into the past. The guide did say rich farmers, so maybe not an every-man type of set-up, but still a good snapshot. Also have a garden and animals representing local varieties for both. The chickens were following us around, which we found hilarious.

A wonderful museum with original farm buildings from 19th century Uppland many of which are open to be explored by visitors. There are also several old breeds of livestock and a garden with plants that were important for everyday life back then. Everything is in great condition and the employees seem very passionate about maintaining the site and sharing their knowledge. We came during a thunderstorm and didn't expect there to be a guided tour, but even though we were just two people, we received a great and very informative tour anyway. A huge thank you to our guide, it really was amazingly informative and felt like the past came alive for a little while. So all in all, Disagården is definitely worth a visit as is all of Gamla Uppsala.

A museum about the Viking ages. Plenty of stuff to see if you're really interested. A fun cosplay area for children and a small shop. I bought some souvenirs from there. Everything is in Swedish and English. Museum has mostly only copies of historical items.

Definitely go there if you visit Uppsala during Summer. There are small houses that are maintained pretty well. There are different furniture and tools in the houses that makes you feel like you are in another century. There is a lot of nature, green and animals. The entrance is free and the staff that works there is incredibly polite and lovely! I would say that this is a smaller version of Skansen in Stockholm, however I loved it even more!

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
