Uppsala On a Budget
Uppsala Uppsala, Sweden
Uppsala is a college town in Sweden, located about 40 minutes north of Stockholm. Home to two universities, Uppsala is the 4th largest city in Sweden and features a huge diversity in culture. The Fyris River divides the city into the historic and modern sides of the city, each one with their own unique culture and sights to see. The area features fairly cool weather year-round, with temperatures in the 30's Fahrenheit from November-April and May-October seeing temperatures in the 40's and 50's Fahrenheit. The best time to visit it from May-July when temperatures are at their highest and there's plenty of sunshine.
The city is divided into two sections by the Fyris River, with the historic side on the west and the residential and commercial side on the east. The majority of sights to see are on the west side of the river, where you'll find the famous Uppsala Cathedral. The huge Cathedral was built in the 13th century and is the largest church in Scandinavia. After wandering through the Cathedral, head to the Uppsala Castle that was built in the 16th century. Inside the Castle, you'll find large halls with paintings and other artifacts, along with the local art museum. While in the city, be sure to check out the Universities and their libraries; the Uppsala University was founded in 1477, making it the oldest university in Scandinavia and features stunning architecture. The Carolina Rediviva is the University's ginormous library that features the famous Silver Bible that dates back to the 16th century.
Uppsala essentially has two neighborhoods, the eastern side of the Fyris River and western side of the Fyris River. The eastern side is home to the commercial and residential area of the city while the western side is where you'll find the majority of historical sights. Both sides offer great accommodation and restaurant options. Just 40 minutes away is Sweden's capital city, Stockholm and 20 minutes away is the ancient Viking city of Sigtuna.

Uppsala is a great place for exploring the culture of Sweden thanks to their many festivals throughout the year. The Kulturnatten is a festival that happens on the second Saturday of September every year when people who work in culture take to the streets to show off their talents. On the last day of April every year, they host the Valborg Celebrations when people spend the day outside, drinking champagne, and singing by the castle. If you're not around during one of the festivals, you can still enjoy the culture on a boat trip along the Fyris River which takes you to Lake Eklon and past the castle. For university students around the world, you can purchase a Uppsala University Student Nation Guest Card that gets you into some of the best parties, pubs, and clubs in the area. The card also gets you discounts on food and drinks around the city.
Food and Dining
With Uppsala being a college town, expect to find mostly relaxed restaurants with cheap eats. There is a large variety of cuisines, including Indian, Thai, Middle Eastern, and Italian.

Coffee is very popular in the area, with cafes spotted all over the place.
