can also buy my guide folder and read about the World Heritage

My guide folder makes yourself a guide.
Experience the World Heritage Site at your own pace and for as
long as you wish.
Visitors to the Birka and
Hovgården World Heritage Sites need to be well-read or have a
knowledgeable guide to understand the history of the places and
interpret the remains correctly.
A good alternative are my guide
folders, one for Birka and one for Hovgården.
Everything I know, heard and seen is there subject to space,
user-friendly presented with text, map and pictures.
A tip is that you order your guide
folder in advance. Birka in particular is so large and extensive
that you have to prioritize even if you stay there all day.
Guide folder for Birka SEK 50.
