Station 6, description

This map of the Swedish provinces of Gästrikland and Hälsingland is in the style of a so-called island map, which does not show the surrounding provinces (höfdinggedöme). The two provinces lie immediately north of the old Swedish centre of power around Stockholm and Uppsala and thus acted as gateways to the North. In the final phase of the Great Northern War, this region saw particularly severe devastation caused by Russian military actions.
