Kastellet

Kastellet

The current citadel on kastellholmen was built in 1845 to replace the original citadel when it was destroyed by an explosion. It was used to manufacture and store gun powder and ammunitions.
Since 1655 the Swedish naval ensign has been flown from top of the citadel to show that Sweden is not at war and is a free state. At least that is the story... At one time someone substituted the flag with a Norwegian one as a prank on the Norwegian national day.
