Introducing Vadstena

On Vättern lake, Vadstena is a legacy of both church and state power, and today St Birgitta’s abbey and Gustav Vasa’s castle compete with each other for admiration. The atmosphere in the old town (between Storgatan and the abbey), with its wonderful cobbled lanes, evocative street names and wooden buildings, makes it an especially satisfying place to end a day of touring along the Göta Canal.
