The city of Linköping in southern Sweden is the capital of Östergötland and one of the oldest cities in the country. Parts of the medieval town still remain, particularly the streets around Stora Torget, Tannerforsgatan, St Korsgatan and Ågatan, as well as the magnificent medieval cathedral built in 1250. Today Linköping is a thriving, modern city but its heritage is kept alive just a short distance away at Gamla Linköping. This museum village recreates Swedish small-town life some hundred or so years ago, complete with cobbled streets and wooden houses, and makes an interesting adjunct to visits to Vreta Abbey and Askeby Abbey.
