The sculpture Birgit
In central Båstad, close to the Maria church and just behind the Tourist information, you find the sculpture Birgit, serenely overlooking the blue sea. Birgit was created by the artist couple Ulla and Gustav Kraitz and was unveiled at a ceremony on the 17th of May, 2013, the day when Birgit Nilsson would have turned 95 years old. Map from google
