Yes, you can also shoot from a bow! This is a real competition. And in Borg there is a Viking house. It was recently renovated, so inside everything looks like new, but the scenery is very beautiful. And the most interesting thing is that here even on weekdays “Vikings” come to live, eat and make something with their own hands. You can chat with them, play traditional games. In winter, the museum is open 2 days a week.

Here is the restored house of the leader in the winter. Just below it is the main building of the museum. In principle, the museum is quite small, and to visit this place is due to 2 things: of course, because of the summer festival, and because of the wonderful atmosphere that people create in the Vikings house.
