Uppsala University, the heart of Uppsala.
On my way to Uppsala University, guided by Uppsala domkyrka. The Uppsala Cathedral is the tallest church building in Scandinavia.
Opposite the cathedral is Gustavianum, a museum. Used to be the main building of Uppsala University.
At the entrance of the cathedral. Hmmm.. no frontal shot of the cathedral in my camera – must have been too tall for my camera to capture!
Huge. Dark. Reminded me of the duomos in Italy.
Lovely cathedral cafe. It’s my first time in one. Quiet. Beings whisper. Shy smiles. Lovely chai latte and brownie.
One of my biggest takeaways from Sweden is fika. We have to give ourselves more afternoon treats. So I try to fika more these days while I have time…
Getting a nice view from my high table and high chair.
I think this is the current main building of the university.
A university town won’t be complete without bicycles (my personal opinion). I never had the chance to cycle back in campus… hmmm…
Botanical garden. Quiet.
Uppsala castle. I like how the balding trees gave the castle a gothic feel. Won’t be able to get such shots in summer/early fall.
Uppsala Cathedral from the castle.
Parting shot of Uppsala. Prefer this to the first picture taken in the afternoon. Pretty sight with the little windows all lit up.
So this is how a university town is like. Did I mention in my earlier presses that I met two young ladies from India who are studying in Uppsala University when I was in Helsinki? Very sweet girls who saw that I was alone and helped me take pictures. Here’s a shout out to them: Nice campus and city you have there! 🙂
