Windmills of Mörbylånga.

With help from touristic infos we took back:

The windmill is Öland's most prominent symbol. From an earlier 2 000 windmills, the remaining approx. 400 have been classified as cultural monuments and are maintained by the many local associations active on the island. During recent years wind power has come to the fore again and a number of modern wind power generators have been erected on Öland.

Öland is Sweden's second largest island, 1 342 km² and has about 25 000 inhabitants. Since 1980 the population of Öland has increased by about 2 000. This relatively large population growth is largely due to the fact that the central parts of Öland have become attractive residential areas for large numbers of mainland commuters since the construction of the Öland bridge.
