If you're interested in Sweden's bygone days, you should definitely pay a visit to Backa! At Backa outside Brastad you will find one of Sweden's largest rock carvings. Backa was an important religious centre, especially in the Early Bronze Age. This has been deduced from the many carved stones and motifs found in the area. The most famous of all the carvings along this road is the so-called Shoemaker, a six foot human figure. The carvings are traces of the people who lived and worked here 3,000 years ago.
