|Description ||These stone configurations are erected in the shape of Viking ships, the Island of Oland being a viking base circa 900 AD.
In this image there is also a well preserved 17th century windmill. The ambience of this site is very good, since it is situated at the edge of the ''Stora Alvaret'', a limestone barren ecological zone, which is replete with rare and endangered wildflowers and other biota.
Virtually the entire southern part of this island lie within a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, based upon the richness of archaelogical and ecological resources here. |
