Varberg Fort (things I didn't get around to posting)

Whilst In Varberg we visited the Fort. Despite being an imposing looking building it never saw any action, instead becoming a jail and now a museum (although the jail hasn't really changed- its become a youth hostel!)

There are several interesting exhibitions including one about a mysterious preserved medieval body found in a peat bog near by.

Apparently some sort of "lake monster" lives in the moat... although having visited Loch Ness and Loch Morar, I doubt the moat could hide anything bigger than a pike!
