Bohus fortress

Bohus fortress is about fifteen kilometers in the north of Gothenburg, beside the village of Kungälv. This castle was built in 1308 by King Håkon of Norway. It was reinforced several times until 1658 when it became swedish. It was then abandoned, because it had no more any strategic interest.
