Took this snapshot of the Old Church in Stugun (Jämtland County) yesterday. It is located close to my new place and I pretty much see it on a daily basis when I am in the neighborhood. It was built close to the water by Pål Persson 1785-1786. History buffs will always find items of interest in the old churches of Sweden, loads of memorabilia from the old wars etc. In this church you have an item that celebrates the victory at the Battle of Narva in 1700. Got to love that.

Here is an old postcard that I spotted on an auction site a while back. Looks like it could be from around 1930-1950. It is interesting to compare the shots. If somebody out there knows more about the postcard, please leave a comment.

Took a few snapshots down by the water in Stugun (Jämtland County) – my new neighborhood – this morning. My place is located below the peak of that mountain ridge. The village has been going for some 800 years, so it has a rich history. Very quiet, everybody says “Hello” to each other, which is sort of nice.

Here you see the little bridge that takes you into the village. Both riverbanks by this bridge is dedicated to people that want to enjoy themselves down by the waterfront, which is good thinking. You can light a fire, flip some burgers and just enjoy the view. This morning it was chilly and the wind was a reminder that winter is coming.

Here is a shot from the riverbank on the other side of the bridge. Note the little islands. There are other spots in the area that are lovely too but that is for another day. Stugun is a place worthy to explore.

Still crazy busy with the move, but things are looking up.

1718

As a bit of a history buff I was astonished to see that they will remember 1718 (if you are a Swede you should know what happened that year) in Stugun (Jämtland County) on July 22, very close to the house I have bought in the village. Only, I get the keys 24 hours later…

Still, wonderful to see that things like this is going on in Stugun.
