The first town in Sweden and more
Birka and Hovgården describe two archaeological sites situated on Björkö Island and Adelsö Island respectively. Together, they make up an archaeological complex that illustrates some of the customs of the Viking-Age Europe.
Birka, in particular, was the site of the first Christian congregation in Sweden, founded in 831 by St. Ansgar, and the first real town in Sweden. Birka and Hovgården are a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993.
