Sigtuna Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Founded in 980 by King Eric the Victorious, Sigtuna was the country's first capital before becoming the main trading centre in the Baltic. The ruins of the stone churches St Lars Kirke, St Per Kirke and St Olof Kirke (12C) are testimony to the fact that Sigtuna was also Sweden's first Christian town. Today, this pleasant garden city on the shores of Lake Mälaren is once again finding a vocation as a religious centre. A stroll about the historical quarter, with its medieval streets, wooden houses and a few fine rune stones provides a good opportunity to soak up the atmosphere that dominates the place.
