Uppsala

Uppsala – this is Sweden’s fourth largest city, and a major university town just north of Stockholm (easily reached by train in just 35 minutes from Stockholm).  Visitors can see the three Bronze Age royal burial mounds in Old Uppsala, along with Scandinavia’s largest cathedral, the university museum (Museum Gustavianum), and local shops and eateries.

 

Also, there’s Gamla Uppsala (Old Uppsala) — one of Scandinavia’s most noteworthy areas with ancient remains. It is the site of three majestic royal mounds from the 6th century, one of Scandinavia’s largest burial areas and ruins of a church built in the 12th century.
