Take a horsecarridge and see Kungsberga

There is a village on the northern Färingsö where the sun always shines, even thoughthe whole sky is filled with clouds. In the blue hole in the cloud cover is Kungsberga, a village that offers many peculiarities. The village's highest mountain in Kumlamountains, with views in all directions. To the east is the mainland and the Northglimpsed some small islands in Lake Mälaren archipelago. West of us is Munsö with its majestic ridge, a powerful natural formation of glacial melting. The church is from the 1100s.
A medieval castle ruins are northwest of Kungsberga.

The strange thing about our village is precisely that it is a village.
The law-shift in the mid-1800s blew up thousands and thousands of villages in our country. The change of a more rational use of the soil but also caused great tragedies of the population. In Kungsberga farmers refused to move their farms -lantmätaren said to have been stabbed and chased fleeing. Since then Kungsberga residents become known as recalcitrant. How it went for the surveyor does not tell the story, but this time the villagers rescued a piece of history.

Here is a piece of living cultural history preserved. The village consists of twelve original farms. They got their numbers in the Middle Ages and native speaking today about Turesson in the second and Nilsson in One. Not so long ago it was a living farming village, where they heard Elvans cows mooing at four o'clock every day and the roosters crow now and then. Outside Elvans barn stood a stately, brown bull tethered in the nose rings. It always felt a bit exciting to go past him. At that time, both Co-op and a private business, Malmgren's life, a post office, a bakery with a bakery and a hair salon.
Malmgren's life was a typical general store where you could buy anything from freshly ground coffee, cloth, salt, stones and bookmarks -In addition to food, milk bought often pinfärsk the nearest farmhouse. In August, the potato pickers, it was a bunch of guys who came here to make a killing during the potato picking time. Every morning they walked down to the potato fields on Large diaphragm. Every afternoon they came wandering back to buy beer and sausage. They had their turf in Ettans hill or at the Co-op. When the beer was-empty and the sausage was out, they spent the night at the site. Many of them were skilled at telling tall tales and today is a place in the village called Mossberg's cafe for a famous potato pickers.
Then came the machines and took the job from the men -and since then has Mossberg's cafe was quiet and closed. Kungsberga village is a living piece of cultural history.

Some of the village's most beautiful barns stands as a monument to the time when agriculture was our main activity. Today it's the horses that keep the land open, but there are also cattle, sheep and even chickens.
Kungsberga is a remarkable village, not least for its history, its sunshine and its mistletoe -there is also an exceptionally pleasant place to live.
