The Merchant


Meet Thorleif, the greatest merchant in Ripa.


The walls in the Thing-hall in Ripa Town 825 AD are adorned with a 20 m long mural. It depicts the story of the foundation of the town. One of the many figures in the mural is Thorleif, the warrior. Men like him brought wealth to Ripa and made the town famous far beyond the borders.


The tale of Thorleif is just one of many in the mural.
