I went to see this runestone, U124 that is located in Karlberg, Stockholm. Actually, it is located in the park of Karlberg Palace.

So, first I went to see Karlberg palace. It is a very beautiful building which is located in front of the water. The area is very quiet and I saw many people were enjoying their free time near the water chatting with their friends. I also saw many boats in the water. It seems that it is a nice area to live in. 😀

It was a bit difficult to find this runestone. But, the runedata, which is provided by Uppsala University helped me to find the location. 😄👍

It is very cool that this runestone was raised in the Viking age when is almost 1000 years ago. There is a cross on the stone so that I believe this runestone was made after Christianity was introduced in this region. I hope to visit more runestones while I stay in Scandinavia. It is fun to learn the history of Scandinavia and rune language 😉🙌

Also, there is a trunk of an oak tree that died for a long time, unfortunately. It seems that the oak tree was planted the time Charles XII of Sweden was on the throne.
