Geocache Description:





Det sägenomspunna Slottets historia sträcker sig 800 år tillbaka i tiden. Under lång tid var Kalmar Slott en betydelsefull försvarsanläggning, som kallades rikets nyckel på grund av sitt strategiska läge. Då gick gränsen om Danmark bara några mil söder om staden, eftersom bl a Skåne och Blekinge var danskt. Kalmar Slott fick sitt nuvarande utseende under 1500-talet, då Vasakungarna Gustav, Erik XIV och Johan III byggde om medeltidsborgen till ett renässanspalats med inredningar enligt kontinentalt mönster. Redan tidigare hade Slottet spelat en viktig roll inom nordisk politik bl a som mötesplats för undertecknandet av Kalmarunionen 1397, en händelse som firades under hela jubileumsåret 1997.

När du ändå är på plats ... Varför inte se om du kan hitta kanonkulorna som sitter i slottsfasaden !!??

 

OBS !!! Se upp för mugglare !!!

 

The history of this legendary castle stretches back over 800 years. During the 12th century a defense tower was erected to protect against pirates and other sea-faring enemies. A harbour was constructed and in the course of time a castle grew around the original tower. Kalmar Castle soon became “The Key to the Kingdom”, a significant defensive fortification on the Danish border with an essential part in international, political life. The Castle acquired its present appearance in the 16th century, when the Vasa kings Erik XIV and Johan III rebuilt it in the style of a Renaissance palace and furnished it in a continental manner. The last king who lived in the Castle and issued governmental documents was Charles XI. He was on the throne from 1673 to 1692. Kalmar Castle played a fundamental role in Nordic policy already in 1397, especially as the meeting place for the signing of the Union of Kalmar. On July 20th, 1397 Queen Margaret I signed the controversial yet memorable pact which joined all of the Nordic countries under a common ruler. In 1997 the city of Kalmar and the Castle celebrated the 600th anniversary of the Union of Kalmar.

When you are looking for the cache ... Why not look for the cannonballs that are stuck in the walls of the castle !!??

NOTE !!! Watch out for mugglers !!!
