treaty of knared stone

This rather unremarkable stone monument in the tiny town of Knared, Sweden is where the Treaty Of Knared was signed on January 21, 1613. The treaty ended the Kalmar War between Denmark-Norway and Sweden and is said to have been signed on that center stone. Ending the Kalmar War was one of the first accomplishments of King Gustav II Adolf whose statue you can see 175 kilometers north of this memorial in Gothenburg, Sweden.

After taking a cheesy travel photo or two of yourself signing something on the stone, you can make your way up that path to the left in the picture and enjoy some great hiking paths.
