Jämtland

Fresh snow at Åreskutan – in September

Jämtlandia jest inna od reszty Szwecji. Tak mówią. Tak jest.

Nie ma tu eleganckich centrów handlowych, drogich sklepów, Starbucksów. Ale jest pierwotna przyroda, czyste powietrze i przepyszne jedzenie. I krajobrazy, w których monotonności można odnaleźć piękno.

Jämtland is different from all the rest. It is said so. And it is true.

There are no elegant shopping malls, expensive boutiques, Starbucks cafes around every corner. But there is pure nature, fresh air (lots of it) and delicious food. And the landscapes, monotonous yet beautiful.

Here are a few postcards form Jamtland.

Älghallen. Dawne ludy wierzyły, że duchy łosi mogą wrócić na ziemię po śmierci, pod warunkiem, że odnajdą swoje kopyta. Odcinano je więc, by dać łosiom drugie życie/ The ancient folks believed that elk’s ghosts can return on earth if they have left there their legs. So they were cut off to make sure the elks could have another life.
