small town village jakriborg christmas swedish love affairAbout two minutes from where we live, there’s a small village called Jakriborg. It’s built in the pre-industrial style of 19th century, but at the same time contains elements of New Urbanism. This means that everything is in a walkable distance, no parking spots in the center, the streets are narrow and cosy and there’s almost no traffic. At the first glance you might  even think a time machine has brought you to a medieval street. It’s hard to believe Jakriborg is only about 10 years old!old fashioned houses jakriborg swedish love affairchristmas 2010 in jakriborg swedish love affairjakriborg houses swedish love affair winter

    The first photo is amazing! It looks almost surreal, like a dream or fantasy and not an actual village! Here’s hoping to see more photos from Jakriborg in the (near) future!

    OMG this village reminds me so much of Hogsmeade, in Harry Potter you know! Or maybe it’s be who’s obsessed, I just saw the last movie and now I’m re-reading the books :)
    Anyway, the first photo is incredible, looks like a postcard!

    Where in Sweden is this? Never heard about it before and I really can’t believe it’s only 10 yrs! Great architecture!

    Så himla häftigt! Och håller med övriga kommentarer om att den första bilden ser tecknad ut. Himla fint :)

    I can hardly believe this place is only ten years old…! I think we need to build more places like this, it looks so friendly and charming :)
