The choice of where to go and what to see when planning a holiday in Sweden can be a real problem – but a nice one, as there is so much to choose from. Perhaps a list of some really interesting places might help you? Stockholm of course is a given – you wouldn’t like to miss out on a capital built on islands amidst glittering (and nowadays very clean) water, with the old town, the royal castle, the metro stations decorated with contemporary art and the city hall with its gold mosaics by Einar Forseth. But where else could you go?
A visit to Uppsala is a visit to the intellectual heritage of Sweden, where you may visit the oldest university building in the country. The building is called the Gustavianum after king Gustavus II Adolphus who contributed a lot of funds, and built in the 1620’s to replace an even older university founded in 1477.
