      Settled by Swedish immigrants in the 1860's, this Swedish village in the middle of Kansas still has a large Swedish population, and its heritage is evident in the architecture, the business names, and the ubiquitous wooden Dala horses about town. Of particular interest are the Swedish Pavilion, constructed for the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, and the Blacksmith Coffee Roastery, a coffee shop established in an old blacksmith shop on Main Street.

      If you go:
      The Svensk Hyllningsfest, a festival held in October of odd-numbered years, is the best opportunity to take in the Old World culture.
