One Sunday in June 2004 me and some friends made it the whole way to Ladonia, just like bunches of tourists. And of course we took a lot of pictures of Nimis, that look like some skyscrapers and create an own skyline (at least with a little fantasy), and Arx, that looks like a cathedral (Sagrada Familia?). All towers of Nimis are built in wood and Arx is built in Stone. The artist Lars Vilks is the brain behind the kingdom and the sculptures. The whole project began in 1980 and the towers has been burned down several times. And there has been a 20 year old fight between the artist(Vilks) and the district court, that mean that he is not allowed to make this exhibition in a nature reserve and want him to remove the sculptures! You can get a membership of the country for free, but if you like to be anything special (lord, baron etc) it costs. The "country" has about 10 000 citizens. Warning! It is very dangerous to walk down, do it at your own risk hehe! It is also interesting, that when you have reached the entrance of Nimis, you can walk down a very long stairway that leads and connects with some of the towers. The towers are called things like Wotan´s tower, The Function of the Ascendant and Tower of Winds.
Wotan´s tower stands independent from the complex. "This construction was started in 1988. The tower is about 12 meters high and have an ongoing fight with the waves. When the wind blows, the tower is totally surrounded by water. On the top there is placed mirrors which are reflecting the sun in the summertime. Inside the tower you can find a small statue of Venus, which can be seen through a peephole."
