Cold spring day

Picture is captured in Uppsala, Sweden. The church on the picture, Uppsala cathedral, is the biggest one in northern Europe. It is also one of the oldest churches in Sweden. In fact, the area around Uppsala is known for its long history. In the outskirts of Uppsala a big field with large mounds rise. The mounds are graves to which old viking kings were burried. Tales even say that the old nordic gods, Odin, Thor and Freyr, are burried in the 3 biggest mounds.
