    Hi! My name is Julia. Born in Russia, I've become a passionate lover of Sweden and everything about and around it. That's why I've spent half of my life studying the Swedish mentality, traditions and history... At the moment I work with various projects, some of which involve teaching Swedish, guiding in Sweden, writing books about Sweden - and that's what I'd like to share with you: my knowledge of all the secrets I've discovered so far. What makes me so different from other guides? Well, here are some examples: - I've written 3 thick travel guides over Sweden, Stockholm and Scandinavia, all of them with tons of fascinating facts - I've been guiding in Sweden since 2000 - I create excursions for travelers from all around the world. - I give lectures about Swedish mentality and customs

  • What you will see and do

    Scandinavia is often associated with Vikings. But who were they? Let's find out!

    During our tour, we'll go the path that is commonly known as the Rune kingdom. We'll talk about the rune alphabet and the hidden messages in the rune stones. We'll stop by at the place where our scientists managed to discover the one hundred years long story of one family - just based on what the rune stones tell us!

    We'll see the way a Viking woman looked like. And we'll see how old bridges were built. We'll have a stop at the Vikings' parliament and visit a reconstructed Viking farm, where you'll have a possibility to explore the life at a typical Viking house about 1000 years ago.

    We also visit an old church with a medieval wall and ceiling paintings (please mind that it can be closed because of services).

    Please NOTE that as I don't have a driving license, I have to arrange transport for us, so please book this tour in advance (or just drop me a line - probably the driver can help us tomorrow? :) ).

    If you have a car of your own, just let me know, and I'll give you a discount.
