The Funbo Church is a medieval stone church, built in the late 12th century. It consists of a rectangular nave, a narrow choir and an apse. The sacristy and the porch were added in the 15th century. The porch was used as the main entrance until 1745, when the current entrance in the western wall was built. The bell tower was erected in 1675.

The church interior includes some notable items, such as a 13th century baptismal font and a 16th century polyptych, manufactured in northern Germany. The altar was inaugurated on 5 December 1301.

Var utanför kyrkan och tittade på vattnet i ån.där asparna brukar leka. Bara en strimma vatten .men grönt och fint.

Very old church, rebuilt several times. The wooden triptichon was carved around 1500. Beautiful naive paintings were painted over a while then restaurated. Although in the weapon house the original colors can be admired. As usual in Sweden the bell tower is farther away. The church is usually closed in order to prevent theft of religious art. Book a visit in advance, well worth the hassle. Best chance to visit the church is when they arrange concert with local performers.

Krivoklát Castle

Křivoklát Castle was founded in the 12th century, belonging to the kings of Bohemia. During the reign of Přemysl Otakar II a large, monumental royal castle was built, later rebuilt by king Václav IV and later enlarged by king Vladislav of Jagellon.

The castle was damaged by fire several times. It was turned into a harsh prison and the building slowly deteriorated. During the 19th century, the family of Fürstenberg became the owners of the castle and had it reconstructed after a fire in 1826.

Today the castle serves as a museum, tourist destination and place for theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored there.
