Vadstena Slott Vadstena Castle

Vadstena Slott Vadstena Castle, in Sweden. A place to visit if you travel to Sweden. I have visited the castle in July last year. Vadstena Castle is one of Sweden’s most preserved renaissance castle. Intended to protect Stockholm from possible attacks from Danes, the castle was built by King Gustav Vasa in 1545, overlooking Lake Vättern. Later the castle was transformed into a renaissance palace for the king’s son, Duke Magnus.

 

 

Inside the castle on the first floor you can see historical exhibits. On the second floor one of four gun turrets, on the third floor furnished with 16th–17th-century furniture and paintings. The museum also contains  the International Academy of Vadstena and the county archives and tourist information center.

Though I found it to be kind of empty inside, expecting more furniture and elements of that kind, the architecture of the castle is very beautiful. There’re relatively few castles in Sweden compared to other countries in Europe.

Here and there you will find the beautiful Swedish landscape, having ruins of castles like the Borgholm castle, founded by the king Knut Eriksson, more known today as Canute.

Though not many, is worth to take a trip to see this places to photograph. I plan that in the future I will have the opportunity, to visit the old castles of Sweden and ruins.

As a photographer, my goal is to create beautiful imagery. I discovered that I can’t stop learning. It’s always something new that you can learn in photography. In my journey, I hope that I can teach others a few little things about photography and photo editing. I’m the author and the creator of this website.
