  • Västmanlands County museum has an object that only that is worth the visit, namely nattvardskalken from Poltava. 1697 Karl XI donated a set of chalices in silver to Västmanlands regemente, it included a beautiful chalice, flagon, a box and a plate of oblater. The Silver came with when the regiment departed in Charles XII's disastrous war against Russia in March 1700. About a thousand soldiers in Västmanland County went off and officers and crew were treated communion wine from the same silverkalk. Regimental Pastor Georg Nothman handled the communion silver. On June 28, 1709 was the battle of Poltava, and when the pastor realized which side held on to win, he dug down the silver by a large oak tree. The Swedes lost the battle and the army later surrendered at perevolochna and went in Russian captivity. Some of them were sent to hard labour in Siberia, others were forced to build the new Russian capital St. Petersburg. Pastor Nothman fördestill Kostroma, where he was interned until peace was finally concluded in 1721 Uusikaupunki. On the way home, he took a detour over to Poltava where he dug up Pastor Nothman took a long detour over Poltava and dug up the silver treasure. Nothman Poltavasilvret retained for itself in seven years and had engraved in her own name in it. Not until 1729, when the regiment gathered for a first generalmönstring after the war, he returned his communion silver. This silver is available at the Museum.

  • Right in the city centre near the train station is this museum housed in an old factory building. It is an impressive building with large space. To the left when you enter the Museum, the art gallery is located on the right. It is a very educational museum for the whole family that puts in Västmanland in the historical context. Here you can really empathize with how it was to live in earlier times. Free entry.
