Facts about Österlenbyn


High above the Baltic Sea, with a mile-wide view, is Vitaby church with the church village consisting of a small number of farms below the church hill. It was here at Vitaby church that Bombi Bitt met Nils Galilé on his way to Kivik's market - at least if we can believe Fritiof Nilsson Piraten.

The long line of Skåne summer markets begins every year with Vitaby market one day in May. Vitaby's surroundings consist of a cultivated landscape with elements of pastures, groves and shrubs. In the west, the landscape is dominated by large, undisturbed coniferous forests.

Down the slopes towards Vitemölla and the popular beach takes you comfortably by bike, about three kilometers. The closest place with service such as school, retirement homes etc. is Ahus, four kilometers east or Sankt Olof 7 kilometers south.
