Skansen photo gallery

The next 18 pages are an album of pictures with captions, some taken by me and others by Skansen's own photographers. This gallery is just a brief introduction to the historic buildings, animals, and other attractions at Skansen. We'll start with:

Seglora Kyrka

The Seglora Church (shown above) is from Västergötland, in Central Sweden, where it was built in 1730. The tower was added in the 1780s. The kyrka has been at Skansen since 1916, where it has become a popular venue for weddings and organ concerts.
