PHOTO GALLERY:
The City of Uppsala, Sweden
Summer 2004


Page Description

This photogallery consists of many photos from the city of Uppsala, the 4th largest in Sweden. It is situated about 40km from the Airport of Stockholm - Arlanda. I went to Uppsala in Summer 2004 (June and August) and it was another beautiful, clean, quite Swedish city. The most interesting sites are the large Botanical garden and the Cathedral. Since I have been there for only 1 day, I am sure that there is more and more to see in Uppsala. There is a description about every photo and the photogallery in nicely presented with navigation buttons and photo thumbnails.

This particular page contains some more photos inside the cathedral of Uppsala, and then photos from the large Botanical Garden beside the castle. This Botanical garden was really organised, clean and relaxing. There were plenty of different plant species, which at end of June they were in flowers. Sometimes you come along an area of several species of the same plant Genus gathered together. This was particularly interesting so as to observe the similar physical features shared between the plants of the same Genus, and in the same time note particular different characteristics of the different species. To visit this garden you would need at least a whole day. The photos here are just a taste of what you can find. Additionally there is also another botanical garden dedicated to the father of botanists, that is the Swedish Carl von Linne.

Some photo description text is marked with an asterisk ' * '. This means that additional information was sent to me by mail by Andreas Heimbrandt, Research Assistant Dep. of Economics, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Thanks Andreas!!! [MarZ]

A quite large tapestry depicted with several important historical events that the church of Uppsala passed through, such as the building of the cathedral and the opening of the monetary by Saint Brigitta.

Another example of fine tapestry, this time being on a more modern symmetrical theme. I really liked the pattern of this large tapestry.

Statue of saint Eric. For some reason this chamber was closed so I had to take the photos through the bars. It is also strange that a Saint holds a sword as if he was a fighter in wars and so killed several soldiers.

At the side of the castle of Uppsala, there are these stairs which lead to a magnificent large botanical garden. I remember well that there was a man in his fifties (he can be seen in white at the far corner) who trained by sprinting the stairs all up and record the time taken by a stop watch !

Photo of Malin at the center of the Garden where there is a building with some museums, studying places and cafeteria. It would really be a pleasure to study or read a book here (of course in Summer!) The buidling is called Linneanum after Carl von Linné, the bothanist. Some plants (cactuses) inside are actually still alive from when he brought them there himself and he lived during the 18th century! *
