From my trip back to Sweden

I took this on my family's recent trip to Sweden to go back to where we grew up. This is on the island Visingsö, and the "building" you see is called Visingsborg castle ruins. It was used between 1715 and 1718 to hold prisoners of war from the Great Northern War, mostly Russian. Per Brahe began building the castle in the 1560s, but was destroyed by fire, supposedly by Russian prisoners of war, in 1718 when news of King Charles death reached Visingsö. Now a lot of renaissance events are held there every year and is one of the many beautiful and historical things still on the island!
