Scandinavian Geography & Lore

Scandinavian Geography & Lore

And legend has it that the troll reached into that area & threw the earth over there, creating Öland (island) & Vättern (lake) & reached into this area here, creating Vänern (lake) throwing the soil over there creating Gotland.

Trolls, tomte, dragons, legends, myths connected to geography, elements, weather & more- I love it all & look forward to learning more Scandinavian lore.
