By the end of July and the beginning of August 2012, I and a friend of mine, we decided to film along the Midnight Sun Road. The starting point of this first session of shootings was the old Gammelstad - Church town listed in the UNESCO Heritage list. This old parish worth a visit for many reasons...one is that if you don't check your watch and forget some cars' engine buzz you feel walking in the past. The Church when we arrived was closed to visits, because in spite of economic crisis at the time there were several marriages scheduled all along the day. I didn't have the chance to get into but the friend of mine knew it from his childhood. We had a short meeting with a guide to learn a llittle about church's history and then we strolled along the old streets. Very interesting is the visit we paid to the nearby house museum where is possible to see old fashioned furniture and more of the times just bygone. We suggest to book in advance a guided visit which let you know more than you can draw by yourself. After, paying the visit to this church you can have a relax holiday at the near beach in Piteå, which is just some km away. Otherwise, you can do like us and discover the main attractions along the Midnight Sun Road, a well paved road that from here drive across the village of Jokkmokk, Gallivare, Jukkasjarvi, Kiruna, Karesuando, Hetta, Kautokeino, Alta till Nordkapp (North Cape)...Yes, it's a long driving but can you imagine visit it during the June-July period when the sun never set?
