By on December 4, 2016

Viking life dramatizes the true picture of the Viking

Premiere April 29, 2017

Across the globe have the image of the Viking taken hold and world interest is now greater than ever. But is the tourist image of the Norse warrior man with horns on the helmet the whole truth? In spring opens Viking life, a unique Viking museum in Stockholm. Viking life is an adventure and a journey through one of history‘s most legendary periods. On 2000 square meters in Wasahamnen on Djurgården, between Vasa Museum and Tivoli Grona Lund, creates right now a dramatized story of the Viking age anno 963.
 
Vikings have become a hallmark of Nordic history worldwide. But even if the interest is high, is often knowledge limited among both foreign tourists and domestic. How many know, for example, to name the Vikings first arrived in the 1800s at a time when you wanted to create a heroic image of the Norse Swedish man?

The Vikings are the most falsified figures in our country. Virtually nothing of the tourism industry claims about them are true. This we will change while providing a colorful and exciting history story of our ancient Scandinavians, says Dick Harrison, history professor and head of the historical anchoring of Viking life.
