It's absolutely cozy!

More pictures for the interested: http://bonnstan.skelleftea.org/ , and go into "Bilder"

Here are some medieval cities in their original sate... unchanged even in modern times, looking the same as when Vlad the Impaler roamed around those streets.

This is Sighisoara in Romania















...and the people still dress the same



...and not very far Peles Castle
