You’ll find Stromstad (current town) close to the Norwegian border in Bohuslan. A cute small village with a lot of history, a wonderful archipelago and thousands of different animals. I suggest you try a trip with the koster ferries that takes you out to the koster islands. Today Swedish Radio actually wrote that Sperm wales have been seen in the koster fjord. Se more on Sveriges Radio. Read more about the islands on http://kosteroarna.com/in-english/
When you then continue to Tanumshede from Stromstad, round 30 kilometers, you’ll pass one of our famous world heritage in form of stone carvings. I am talking about Vitlycke museum. If you go south from the church in Tanumshede you’ll pass this road sign to the right..
You’ll see the Vitlycke stone after a couple of kilometers to thr right of the road. In summer it is quite full with tourists on this spot.
This stone is quite big and it could be quite difficult to get a picture with all carvings simultanously. I’ll show you some here.
This ”the couple” is propably the most famous carvings here. Scientists say that the man behind with an axe is propably a kind of preast that declare the couple as wife and husband.
If you then go to the left, when you’ve got the vitlycke stone in front of you, you are able to see a couple of more carvings on the Vitlycke trail. This is a carving with bronceage hornblowers, some animals and warriors.
On the other side of the road you’ve got Vitlycke museum that contains a lot of stories, souvenirs and finds from the area. This is an interpretation of the famous carving called ”the fossum woman” that you’ll find a couple of kilometers from the museum.
Just behind the museum you’ll find a bronceage village as the searchers beleive they looked like. This kind of buildings where usual from late stone age to iron age in Scandinavia.
I’ll publish some more pictures later.
