Vadstena - A creative historyEditorial /
Words cannot convey the aura of history that pervades throughout Vadstena. Though nebulous it is almost tangible. It has to be experienced. Abundant evidence of this takes the form of the many remarkably well preserved medieval buildings in which one can almost step back in time. Not least among Vadstena’s other attractions is its immediate proximity to Lake Vattern which affords beaches and aquatic activities. A key factor in maintaining not only an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, but also generating the energy and movement in Vadstena, is the pride and sense of custodianship that the residents have in the place that creates it. A place that for centuries people have turned to for recreation and inspiration. Vadstena has always been a place to marvel at, visit, return to, enjoy and stay in. Vadstena doesn’t only have one history – but many. And we create them together. Welcome to Vadstena!
