Oskar-Fredriksborg Fort by EuroTourData
Oskar-Fredriksborg Fort was built in 1877 as the coastal fort to protect the strategic waterway across strait Oxdjupet to Stockholm and was part of Vaxholm Fortification Line. The fort consists of an upper part that was blown up in the rock and the lower part at the edge of the fairway. These parts are connected by the tunnel about 300 meters long located inside the rock. The upper part had three 240 mm. cannons М/96 that were installed on the descending platforms. In the lower part, there were cannons in casemates, which had a firing direction to the northern entrance to the strait and to the flank at the waterline level. For protection from the infantry, the lower part has caponiers, which are also connected by the tunnel inside the rock. Info is based on the article Oskar-Fredriksborg of Swedish Wikipedia.
