An open-air ethnographic museum of Slavs and Vikings in Wolin is the reconstruction of buildings from the early Middle Ages.

"The area at the mouth of the Oder was inhabited by a thriving Slav tribe of the Wolinians with its main town in Wolin. Wolin is mentioned by Arabic chroniclers as the most beautiful port of the Baltic Sea and the city of twelve gates. Situated at the trade route, Wolin attracted traders, travellers and contemporary pirates – the Vikings. At the end of the 10th century, in Wolin lived an expelled Danish king – Harald Bluetooth – an alleged founder of Jomsborg, the Viking village at the mouth of the Oder. Probably, somewhere at the mouth of the Oder there was Vineta, a legendary port, one of the biggest cities at the Baltic Sea at that time. Even today, the exact location of Vineta remains a mystery. The legend of the rich city survived for several hundred years. In the 18th century, the inhabitants of Wolin were frantically searching for hidden treasures, even in their own houses, digging up cellars to such an extent that the walls of their houses started cracking.

Archaeologists still look for these treasures. They have found the only existing medieval compass, fragments of ships, a port, a former temple, jewellery and weapon. The total weight of discovered silver and gold amounts to over 11 kilos.

In the villages of Slavs and Vikings, you can visit a number of houses, among others the house of an amber jeweller, minter, potter or a fisherman. The houses are surrounded by fortifications and a tower with a gate. An interesting attraction are two runic stones of which one is dedicated to Świętosława, a daughter of Mieszko I of Poland and the second to the Norwegian King – Olaf Tryggvason. In the open-air museum, there are organised workshops of ancient crafts, and every summer a great outdoor event ‘The Slavs and Vikings Festival’ takes place there.”

I’m going to build something like this with stone and timber and reign with my queen.

"Liquor I suppose," he looks down at his rings, being a smartass.

"Fine, lets go shop for a baby before I see them empty handed."

"My brothers would kill me if I brought booze for the baby" He lightly places his hands on the other’s cheeks.

"I suggest you pack a toothbrush, family gatherings tend to take the whole night"

Your character finds mine passed out sleeping naked in bed. What do they do?

"That’s Ice for you, you’ll learn to love his assholeness" There’s a chuckle, "more like found a kid, either way yeah"

"We will need to bring a gift, for the baby and maybe my brothers"

"Icy reminds me of Greece, I can handle him," he shrugs with a grin. Truthfully most of his "family" are assholes including himself. "They found a baby? Like…it was left on their doorstep or something?"

"A gift? Like what? Baby shit?"

His own family’s filled with jerks so. “yeah, something like that I guess, left on the doorstep. Now it’s got a family though”

"Yes, what else would you get a baby?"

"Well, Nor and Ice have a kid and they’re my brothers so yeah. It makes me an uncle" There’s a pause and he he just grabs the other’s hand.

"I want you there, with me and the family"

"I think Icy talked to me about it before when he wasn’t being an asshole for once," he rubs his chin, "so they went ahead and gotta kid?"

"Alright I will go."

"That’s Ice for you, you’ll learn to love his assholeness" There’s a chuckle, "more like found a kid, either way yeah"
