    When the King lost his head

    by Maline Updated Jul 5, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When the Danish invaded back in the old days, there was a huge battle in the Uppsala vicitnity. The KIng, Erik himself fell victim during the battle and was decapitated. In the place where his head fell, a well sprang out of the ground. This place is located in central Uppsala and the well is marked with this greenish edifice. It is very near the museum Upplandsmuseet, just to the left of its entrande on Sysslomansgatan in Uppsala.

    The Well is known as St: Eriks källa ( St. Eric's well).
    It may not be a place of such interest that you venture out just to see it, however, if you are walking nearby, (it is very close to Domkyrkan Cathedral for example) or entering the Upplandsmuseum, you can have a look at it.
