Runic stones provide a unique portal to the Viking age. Our region is packed with runic stones, to say the least. In fact, half of Sweden’s 2,800 known runic stones and inscriptions are located in Uppland. A cultural treasure of mandatory stops for those who want to see the whole picture of Viking history in the County of Uppsala. But you don’t need to travel far outside Uppsala – a few of them stand in the city centre as reminders of a bygone era.
If you’re finding it hard to choose which ones to see, we have listed below some of the runic stones that are worth a visit:
- The runic stone in the University Park
- The Vårdsätra Bondkyrka Church Parish runic stone – Lövängsvägen 8
- The runic stone at Läby vad – Läbyvadsvägen
