On Kulturmiljöbild

Kulturmiljöbild, our photographic database online, contains more than 100 000 digitized and searchable photographs illustrating the diverse work and activities undertaken within the field of cultural heritage and historic environment conservation in Sweden - a real gold mine for those of you who love pictures.

The photographs have been taken over a period stretching from the later part of the 19th century up to the present day. The themes represented are - among others - ancient monuments and churches, urban and rural environment, landscapes, industries, archaeology and aerial photographs. The main part of the photographs are taken in Sweden, but there are also photographs from other countries.

The database includes the Board's own photographic work for more than a century, as well as digitized photographs from the Board's public archives collections. Digitization helps to improve the photographs' accessibility and at the same time preserves the quality of the originals. The database is continually updated and new photographs added.

The photographs on display are free to download without charge. You can also purchase high-resolution photographs as digital files or prints. We will then charge a fee for the work required. When using the photographs we are grateful if you state the photographer's name, if known, and make a reference to Swedish National Heritage Board as the source.

If you need more information or have any questions please contact kmb@raa.se

Flickr Commons

The Swedish National Heritage Board has become a member of The Commons on Flickr in order to increase public access to its collections of photographs and to provide a way for the general public to contribute information and knowledge.

The photos that are part of The Commons have no known copyright restrictions (marked "no known copyright restrictions"), indicating that the Swedish National Heritage Board is unaware of any current copyright restrictions on the works displayed, either because the term of copyright may have expired, or because we believe no copyright restrictions apply.

The Swedish National Heritage Board does not warrant that the use of the photos shared on The Commons will not infringe upon the rights of third parties, as yet unknown, who may own the rights to these works. You are required to determine and satisfy copyright and other use restrictions that may apply to these works.

The photos on Flickr Commons have no known copyright restrictions and they are free to use. Still, when you use a photo from The Commons we would be grateful if you make a reference to

  • The photographer
  • The Swedish National Heritage Board

We would also like you to spread the sharing of our photos by linking back to the photo on Flickr Commons.

To obtain a high-resolution file or a high-quality reproduction of the original photo we will charge a fee for the work required. Please contact kmb@raa.se

Search alternatives in the photographic database

You can search the database in three ways: "Fritextsökning" ["Free text search"], "Objektsökning" ["Object search"] or "Avancerad sökning" ["Advanced search"].

These alternatives are accessed via the tab "Sök" ["Search"]

Fritextsökning [Free text searching]

In a free text search you type one or several words in the box "Sök med fritext" ["Search with free text"].

The search function then displays all the pictures matching these words (rather like a Google-search).

Objektsökning [Object search]

In an object search you search for pictures on the basis of their name.

Avancerad sökning [Advanced search]

An advanced search allows you to search for very specific values, e.g. all photographs of harbour environments taken from 1999-2001 by a particular photographer.

Det finns ca 200 000 sökbara bilder i systemet.
