The southern part of Sweden looks very different from the north. There are fewer forests and more open fields and agricultural land. At the very southern tip of the country is the beautiful town of Ystad. Near Ystad is an actual Viking village, recreated from hundreds of years ago. Viking culture is alive in this village and the people here operate much as the Vikings did 1000 years ago.
This is a reproduction of actual operating lathe that was used in Viking times. You push on the pedal on the ground and it spins the stock. Pretty ingenius.
