City Gay Tours offers the opportunity to visit Sigtuna, Sweden’s oldest existing town which was founded in 970 AD. Spend the day exploring this medieval town (today counting 9000 inhabitants), following the traces of Vikings and early Christian heritage.
We will meet in a convenient central Stockholm location to board a vintage ferry for a two-hour cruise across Lake Mälaren and enjoy the beauty of this lake during the commute.
Once arrived to Sigtuna, the tour will start at the main square called Stortorget to stroll along the narrow and cobbled streets enjoying the medieval architecture. Here we immerse ourselves in history, church ruins from a medieval church.
Next, we will walk among the 18th and 19th century traditional wooden houses on the main street which has kept its original Middle Ages touch.
In medieval times, Sigtuna was a great place of worship and known for its churches of which most are ruins today.
Nearby stands Mariakyrkan, the oldest brick building, originaly the site of a Franciscan Abbey that is dating back to 1247. Here you will learn about the meaning of the message on the rune stones, the commemoration monuments of the Vikings.
We will then walk by the Lake Mälaren for a while until we found a suitable local coffee house for a break.
After the break , we board a minivan for a 50-minute drive throught Swedish countryside, back to Stockholm.
