Vacker kyrka som erbjuder flertal musikupplevelser .

En vacker kyrka med otrolig fin rymd. Ger en naturlig känsla av värme. Kyrkan har en historia och ligger på en välplanerad plats. Har fastnat särskilt för kyrkans varma fönster. När ett starkt sken skiner igenom dessa fönster känner man att värmen stiger. Möjligheten att tända ljus finns. Att sitta och bara vara i en kyrkbänk har många gånger gett mig ett varmt mig.

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.
