This was my 1st time in Örebro, although I had changed trains there once before… it was the 1st place where I would see a concert on my 4 or 5 day “flit” to Sweden (I had done a proper 2 weeks holiday there in June until I saw the ads for the concert and bought the tickets lol) but this meant even more to me as my friend and temporary flatmate also lived here before moving to the UK. Cool!
A rough translation (which makes more sense than the Google translation provided on the website!!) from Örebro’s official town website about the history…
Ever since the Middle Ages, Örebro Castle has been the town’s central point.
Surrounded by the swirling currents of the Black River, it has stood guard/kept a watchful eye over all who cross the river. There are plenty stories and myths about the castle including that it is haunted.
The castle is believed to be about 700 years old although there are a lot of gaps in the history. It is part of the Riksantikvarieämbetet (Swedish National Heritage Board).
Here is a page about the history of the castle (English).
Örebro, Närke, Sweden. August 2007.
Canon IXUS 850is.
I use no post processing of any kind, unless stated.
