Adelsö is an island in the middle of Lake Mälaren in Sweden, near Björkfjärden. The administrative center of the important settlement Birka (on the neighbouring island Björkö) was situated at Hovgården on Adelsö. Adelsö has about 700 permanent residents, a number that has been quite stable throughout the centuries. Many residents commute to jobs in Stockholm, but there are also farmers and fishermen. During the summer months, the island is popular with tourists.
