my kind of tourist attraction

Sweden re-opens its oldest toilet to the public.

An 18th century toilet is taking on an unlikely role as one of Sweden's newest interactive tourist attractions.

The ancient lavatory, in Åsens By, south-eastern Sweden, has been carefully restored as part of an attempt to show visitors how their ancestors relieved themselves.

Heh. I'll show you "interactive."

And on a related note...

Did you know that the government of Australia has a National Public Toilet Map?.

I can see it now, catering a series of junkets all devoted to "voiding"...
