Uppsala has 185,000 inhabitants, of which 35,000 are students. Stockholm, Sweden’s capital, is just a forty-minute train ride away. Uppsala’s central location and close proximity to Arlanda airport make it a gateway to the rest of Sweden and the world.
Downtown Uppsala is a bustling cultural and commercial centre with an array of cafés, shops and a newly built concert hall. The river Fyrisån runs right through the city centre, providing a natural focal point and making it hard to get lost. This can be a good thing after an evening spent at one of the city’s 13 student societies.
