There are many old towns all over Sweden that preserve different elements of Swedish history. Sigtuna and its well preserved main road memorialise the first Christian town in the country; Skansen in Stockholm recreates per-industrial life all over Sweden; Uppsala city retains a look of Sweden during the Stormaktsiden (Swedish Empire); Gammelstad freezes a quiet 17th century church town in town and Trosa showcases a beautiful 18th century town.
Örebro’s Wadköping preserves the 18th century central Swedish country.
Unlike most of the other examples above (except Skansen), Wadköping did not actually exist, but was built as a showcase town by bringing houses from different parts of Central Sweden.
