Walking around Uppsala

When I decided to come and study in Uppsala University I didn’t know exactly what I was getting myself into. I have a friend how came few years ago as an exchange student and he’s truly fascinated about this place, so I said to myself: “It has to be a wonderful place”. Now that I’ve had the opportunity to walk a little bit around Uppsala I can understand why. It’s a beautiful city, full of flowers and people walking on the streets. The atmosphere is very refreshing and everywhere you look at you can see young people from around the world. If you pay attention you can hear people talking in a lot of different languages.

There are a lot of pretty places to visit. Sadly I haven’t had the chance to visit them all, but I recommend you to walk close the river, visit the cathedral, and the castle. Anyway, here are some pretty pictures about Uppsala and I hope I can share more with you very soon J

Something worth highlighting is that Swedes are very friendly: almost everyone speaks perfect English and in any case they will ALWAYS try to help you. They might seem timid and reserved, but you just need to give it a try and talk to them.
