SOANE TRAVELS:   Sweden 

from the Castles of Skåne in Southern Sweden to Stockholm and the surrounding Countryside

Sunday, 14 May to Sunday, 21 May 2006

Organizer: Stefano Aluffi-Pentini

A Private View of Europe/A Private View of Italy

Lecturers: Dr. Johan Cederlund, Lars Sjöberg and Dr. Stuart Wrede

 

Gray skies or brilliant blue skies, either provided a beautiful palate to highlight the extraordinarily diverse architecture as we saw visiting 26 manor houses and castles during our eight days.

Departing from Copenhagen, we cross into the southern province of Skåne, where the history is rich and the area contains over 240 castles and manor houses. Situated across the Danish Straits, this province has had long Danish connections and is the site of many battles for sovereignty of the area. After two nights in the area, we will spend a day driving up the West Coast before boarding a train to cross the country and arrive in Stockholm which will be our home base for intensive explorations.

SOANE TRAVELS is an educational travel program featuring scholars in the fields of architecture, design and decorative arts and is sponsored by Sir John Soane's Museum Foundation.
