This is Tällbergs Church Boat “Nyttug”. It is a small boat with five pair of oars. It was built in Sollerön, in the northern part of Siljan, 1901. The boat has mainly transported people to the morning service in Leksand’s church, but also coffins with villagers to the last rest at the cemetery of Leksand.
