3. Vikings, counts and barons at Bogesund
Bogesund is a place in Vaxholm, situated about 30 minutes from Stockholm. For about 1000 years ago there were vikings living in this place. Today we can still see the gravefields and runestones from the Vikingage at Bogesund. In the 1700th century, one of the most powerfull men in Sweden at that time - Count Per Brahe - built a castle at the same place. Two centuries later Baron Nils Hopken rebuild the castle - despite the old 1600's curse. Perhaps that was why the castle was abandoned and fell into disrepair during the 1900s ...
