Kalmarsund VIII in Kalmar, Sweden, 8th of November 2004.
Until 1972 she was in traffic between Kalmar and Färjestaden on the island of Öland. When the Ölandsbridge (seen in the background) was opened in 1972 she was sold to Yugoslavia, in 1999 she was once again sold, this time to Mr. Olof Paradis from Färjestaden who brought her all the way from Zadar, Croatia back "home" to Färjestaden, Sweden. She is now restored and looks exactly like she did during her time here in Sweden. She is a museum/pub and during the summmer she does trips up north through Kalmarsund up to Borgholm on the north of Öland. She´s a real beauty!
