Take a cheap car holiday and visit the city of Eskilstuna in Sörmland. Located on the Eskilstuna River, which connects lakes Hjälmaren and Mälaren, the town was a trading centre in the 1000s thanks to its strategic location. The name Eskilstuna is derived from the English monk and Sörmland saint St. Eskil. The centrally located Fors Church, the town's oldest, dates back to the mid-1000s.
Don't miss the Rademacher Forges, an open-air museum in the city centre where you'll find well-preserved houses from Reinhold Rademacher's 17th-century forge production. Traditional handicrafts can be bought in the area, which can be purchased on site. Take a cheap self-drive holiday and have a summer break in Sweden.
