... the hop on hop off boat to travel between some of the 14 islands that make up Stockholm.

All was stable until the Danes arrived 80 years later and fought with the farmers, with the city spectating from the walls. The farmers lost and 1800 of them were buried in mass graves, many of which have subsequently been excavated. Seeing this, the city opened the gates and the Danish ...
