Photographer's Note

This castle is to be found at Bogesundslandet, Vaxholm outside Stockholm.
The castle was built in the year of 1650 by Per Brahe (Brahe is a famous Swedish noble family)
The four towers was built 1860. Inspired from the medieval knight castles.
Now the castle is empty and owned by the Swedish Government. Some rooms opens up sometimes during the summer to the public.
Many ghost stories surrounds this place. The most famous one is about a crying lady. This story has even been on TV several times.
It has been said that she wanders the empty castle, weeping, and nobody really knows why or who she is. You can sometimes see her standing in the windows in her white dress.
