After my previous posts about Szczecin in 2008, the city has changed a lot. The main reason for this change is the lauch of a new vision for Szczecin. This new vision is called the Szczecin Floating Garden 2050. It's main goal is to create a unique city – a Floating Garden – by 2050.

The Szczecin Floating Garden 2050 project creates new areas, improves the city's infrastructure, is responisble for the renovation of various buildings and many more.

The Jelling stones are two massive runestones standing in Jelling, Denmark, between two large mounds. The site symbolizes the creation of a unified Denmark and the introduction of Christianity there.

The older Jelling stone is erected by King Gorm in memory of his wife Thyra around the year 950. King Harald Bluetooth erected the larger of the two Jelling stones around the year 965 in memory of his parents, Gorm and Thyra. The inscription on the large stone also gives an account of Harald’s achievements. He unified Denmark and made the Danes Christian.

The burial mounds are said to have been those of King Gorm and his wife Thyra. Yet archaeological excavations and research shows that only the North mound contains a burial chamber. It is possible that this chamber once held the bones of Gorm the Old, bones that later have been found underneath Jelling Church.

located just across the large monument area lies Kongernes Jelling, a viking experience centre. Here you can learn about the Danish kings, from Gorm the Old to the present royal family, explore Jelling of the Viking Age and learn more about the Jelling stones.
