Sigtuna, Sweden

Sigtuna is the oldest city in Sweden, and was once the capital and religious center of the country during a certain period of time. Sweden’s first town was founded in 980 AD beside Lake Mälaren, on the north of Stockholm. Sigtuna’s rich and long-lived history could be observed though the medieval churches, ruins, rune stones and buildings that stand to this day in and around the town.
The cozy city charms visitors by its cobblestone streets, museums, churches that show and symbolize the transition between the Viking and medieval ages. It was also the site of the first Swedish mint were first Swedish coins were stamped. Sigtuna especially revives during the Christmas time as well as the four weeks of Advent when it is full of Christmas markets selling local handicrafts and delicacies.
