Less than an hour from Uppsala is the amazing city of Stockholm! I’ve been studying so much that I waited and waited until the winter break came and I finally went there! I honestly have to say I didn’t know what I was missing. Stockholm is actually a very beautiful city and it looked really amazing all covered with snow.
The train tickets are very cheap and you can come back to Uppsala the same day. You can walk around the city, visit some of its many museums and you can even take a boat trip.
If you are interested in taking a tour, I recommend you to look for the Hop On Hop Off tours. Just like in most cities around Europe they have many tours and even they have a boat route around the islands. The bus tour is a very good option during the cold days since you get to see the city, go off the bus in the places you like and then get in the bus again and hide from the cold weather.
Stockholm also has many outdoor theaters which I’m dying to enjoy during the spring!
