Norway into Sweden

Housekeeping done! We set off to our next stop - Bohus Fortress in Kungalv. It was built in 1308 by the Norwegian King Haakon V Magnussen and was Norway's largest and strongest fort. Yes I know we are in Sweden! The Swedes tried many times without success during the Nordic Seven Years Wars to take the fort in the 1500s. It wasn't until the Treaty of Roskilde in 1658 that this area was handed to Sweden.
