Burgher's House


A typical burgher’s house in Mariestad, Sweden where the otherwise symmetrical building has an extra chamber on one side – typical for the area. It was built shortly after the fire of 1693. Around 1900, there was a bakery in the northern part of the building. Taken by Renny

Thanks for plugging me - I'm flattered!

You know I love to share our culture and traditions from Norway and the Nordic countries and you really helps to widen the audience. This picture is from our vacation city in Sweden and I think its very beautiful myself.
