The spectacular football field built on a rock is among the most beautiful in the world

The Henningsvaer Stadion is considered one of the most beautiful football fields in the world. Built on a rock in Henningsvaer — a fishing village on the islands Lofoten, Norway — it has no grandstands or other amenities and at the moment would only host amateur youth teams. The stadium is located about 200 km from the Arctic Circle and despite the harsh climate, the synthetic turf manages to remain perfect, thanks to the leveling of the rock layer and the latest generation lighting. The football field has gained great notoriety since the 2000s, when aerial images taken by drones began to spread.

Thailand could introduce a fee for tourists: how much it would cost from June

Starting in June 2023, Thailand could introduce a fee for tourists, as announced by Tourism Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, quoted by Bangkok media. According to what has been learned, the date of arrival and not the date of booking the trip may prevail to apply the fee. While waiting for the government to give the final go-ahead, it is known that the fee should be around 9 euros (300 baht) and that it will be applied, presumably, through air tickets. The hypothesis, from what filters from Bangkok, is that the money collected through the payment of the fee goes to cover medical expenses for foreigners involved in accidents or injuries within the country but also to support investments for development in tourist destinations.

Runestone discovered in Norway: will it be able to reveal what we still do not know about the runic alphabet?

During an excavation of a tomb found in the municipality of Hole, Norway, archaeologists from the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo have discovered an ancient runestone that could be between 1800 and 2000 years old. The discovery was made in autumn 2021 but would have been made known only now, after carrying out some studies and surveys on the find. According to archaeologists, the runestone dates back to the period between 0 and 250 AD and therefore belongs to what is defined as the Roman Iron Age. The runestone could be the first example of words recorded in writing in Scandinavia and could also help to understand both the origin of the runic alphabet, about which little is known, and who composed this Germanic written language.
