Borgholm Castle is the ruin of a fortress first built in the second half of the 12th century and rebuilt many times in later centuries.

Örebro (Oerebro) Castle, Örebro, Närke, Sweden.

 

The castle lies on an island in the river Svartån.

 

For over 700 years occupants of Örebro Castle monitored the bridge over the River Svartån. The oldest part of the castle, a defence tower, was erected in the latter half of the 13th century. This tower was added to in the 14th century to make a larger stronghold, and towards the end of the 16th century most of the castle we see today was built. It was expanded during the reign of the royal House of Vasa and rebuilt about 1900.
