Visited center during the Wiking and Slav's festival and it was experience that will stay in my mind for a long time. We have discovered and learned so much. Even without festival you need to count with few ours to explore this awsome place.

Don't expect something spectacular, ut is not disneyland. However, you see that an army of volunteers put in lots of effort to recreate a old village. In summer, people also live there!

I have visited Vineta several times. For Scandinavians, the reference to Jomsborg is truly interesting. The many similarities between the Northern and southern shores of the Baltic Sea are really interesting. As Danes went mostly west we have focused more on Danelaw in England, but...More
