Kvetera Church is a Georgian Orthodox church in a historic fortified town of Kvetera in Kakheti.

Kvetera Church was built in the early part of the 10th century. It is a relatively small church and resembles the Georgian cross-dome style of architecture. The dome rests on a round tympanum and rises over the central square pace. The Projections end in an apse, which have niches between them. The facade of the church is not designed with a lot of ornaments which is typical for Kakhetian churches. Most of the facade is decorated with symmetrical arches.

Bluuuue chuuuuuurch ??? Inside of a fortified walled fortress is a lovely little monastery with blue tiles for a roof and an awesome dome on the inside ? I really like how the fortress is fully intact right here waiting for barbarians to come over the walls at any time ?? Super cool ride out here on the motorcycle with the paved and random dirt sections connecting the road out this way ?????? Honestly this lil guy could quite possibly be the perfect spot for an afternoon picnic ???

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.
