Dalarö Church

Haninge, Sweden

The wooden church of Dalarö was built in 1651, couple of decades after Dalarö was established as a toll station of Stockholm city. The church got its present appearance in 1787. It has survived completely from the large fires in Dalarö.

There is a pulpit from 1630s, originally created for Tyresö church but donated to Dalarö in 1639 (because it was not considered good enough for the new church in Tyresö). Around the church is a small cemetery that has not been used since the 1880s. A freestanding bell tower from 1745 is located on a hill near the church.

Beautiful and peaceful church on Dalarö. Here there are many feelings and memories that took place. Marriage for mom and dad. Baptism for me and my older brother. Also some funerals that you had to go through. The church is very nice and suitable. Right by the blue sea. Absolutely wonderful. In the middle of the archipelago.

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.
