"Blå Jungfrun National Park" Blå Jungfrun Nationalpark by sim1


Blå Jungfrun is an isolated island with no resembles with close bye mainland or islands. Its unique shape , height and nature has for centuries been landmark for sailors and a “must-do” visiting point for nature lovers. In folklore this is the place “Blåkulla” where the witches went on their broomstick for the annual Easter meeting. It has got its name Jungfrun – The Virgin –to please the weather Gods making them ease the storms.

Blå Jungfrun is a small island, which you easily walk around in some hours. If you use your broomstick it might go faster :-)))))
