In the Instagram Travel Thursday post this week I wrote a question in the end of where to go for a short trip within 300 km from Bergslagen if me and boyf. wanted to go somewhere during this weekend. I think I got only one suggestion, and that is probably just because this guy is from the area and know what is within 300km from Bergslagen. Thanks to Replicant Core for suggesting Visingsö even if we ended up somewhere else.. Rep. Core is a blogger that lives in Örebro and comment frequently on my photos.
Where did we end up then?
The old mine of Stripa, Stripa gruva, is a mine in Bergslagen close to Lindesberg. It is really well preserved and a dream for photographers that loves history, rusty stuff and buildings. So Rep. Core, maybe this is something for you instead?
For 60 sek (around 10 dollars) you get a guided tour (ours where for 3 hours!) where the guide has a lot of knowledge of the area. The tour takes place at 14, Tuesday to Sundays, and the area is opened from 13-17 between the 25th of June to the 24th of August.
Enjoy the photos and please take a look at Stripa Gruva, I recommend it to the fullest. It is much more well preserved than anyone could ever imagine and as I told the guide in the end of the tour, why isn´t this on the World Heritage List?
