The medieval church of St. Ibb's, high on a hill above the Kyrkbacken marina, is my favourite location on the island of Ven. They view from the church in all directions is just breathtaking.

last night. You can see the Kronborg castle in the background on the right.

way to Ust Luga.
|The bulk carrier Twinkle Island (229 m x 32 m, Marshall Is. registry) also on its|
way to Ust Luga last night.

the Kyrkbacken marina.
