    You've read a lot by now about Östergötlands Län, but where is it located? Roughly said Östergötlands Län is located in the north-eastern part of Götaland (Southern part of Sweden), on the east side of Lake Vättern.

    Some general websites about this area in Sweden (unfortunately are many of them only available in Swedish): (in Swedish only) (in Swedish only) (in Swedish only)

    Favorite thing:
    The system in Sweden is rather confusing (I think). So let me make a try to confuse you as well, LOL :-))

    Three parts of Sweden
    First of all Sweden is often roughly devided in three main parts and Svealand is the central part of the country. On the map you can see these three parts of Sweden.

    - Götaland = South Sweden
    - Svealand = Central Sweden
    - Norrland = North Sweden

    Län (counties)
    These three parts are further devided in several counties ("Läns" in Swedish). In total there are 21 counties of Sweden. VT uses the Län structure of Sweden, so I am using that too here in my travel pages.

    Landskap (provinces)
    But besides these "Läns" people also refer to the different part of Sweden in "Landskap" (=province). In total there are 25 "Landskap" in Sweden. I've noticed that this is a more used system when talking with Swedes and reading travel books.

    So what is so confusing?
    Län = Landskap --> but not always!!!
    The names of Landskap and Län are often almost the same --> but not always!!!
    Officially used is the "Län" system, people often still use the "Landskap" system

    Luckily this is all very simple for Östergötlands Län as the region / Län = province / landskap :-))

    Län = county = Östergötlands län
    Landskap = province = Östergötland

    The "Län" or county is a replacement of the "landskap" or province, but lots of people still think in "landskap" here in Sweden. Hahaha, I guess Swedes are stubborn as they changed the system officially from Landskap till Län already in 1634 ;-) Hmmmmm..... although I have to admit that I think in Sweden in "landskap" as well ;-))

    Sweden: G��taland, Svealand and Norrland
