During my travel around the beautiful Öland island I found a flyer telling about the reconstructed Viking fortress in Eketorp. First I thought it is only a place for kids to play Viking, but decided anyway to pass by to have a look. Glad I did, cause it is an interesting place. The fortress has been rebuilt exactly as the foundations which were discovered here. There are several activities where kids can for example shoot arrows, but there is also a museum showing the development of the settling as well as things that were found here. In the fortress animals like chicken and pigs walk around.
For an insight into the history of the place I recommend the links:
