Lund University, Lund
Ok, so I guess all of you already know that Lund is a univerity town, one of the biggest in Sweden. This is the main university building, also the oldest one (about 350 years old). It's in Lundagård, in the middle of Lund, and without doubt worth to see if you want to take some good pictures of something very "Lundish"!
Lund and Uppsala are the "Oxbridges" of Sweden and "the" places to have studied. Whilst Uppsala is the oldest in Sweden, Lund University was founded in 1666 to tie the newly aquired former Danish provinces closer to Sweden. Today, there are 34000 students enrolled which makes the city very academic even if some of them study in Helsingborg and Malmö too.
Lund University was founded in 1666. With eight faculties and a multitude of research centres and specialised research institutes, it is the largest centre for research and higher education in Scandinavia. More than 40,000 students are enrolled at the University, studying any of the 85 educational programmes, eighteen international masters programmes, or the 1,000 individual courses.
The University covers a wide area stretching north from the Domkyrka
It is one of the most important universities in Scandinavia, founded 1668 and today forming a big part of the town and contributing all essentials to Lunds unique spirit.
The most famous item currently on display here is the "Uppåkra lion" recently found in excavations at the ancient village of Uppåkra just outside Lund and making international headlines thanks to looking like a prehistoric Mickey Mouse. As with other museums, it is closed Mondays. To be ctd.
Lund University is the second of two large state universities in Sweden. The other one is located in Uppsala, North of Stockholm.
The school consists of buildings that are scattered around the city.
