  • Gamla Uppsala

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Uppsala Things to Do

    The history of the Gamla Uppsala Church dates back to the 11th century, when the first church was built on the site of a former pagan temple. It burnt down in the middle of the 13th century and was later rebuilt. The current appearance is from the 14/15th century and the building is much smaller than the original church. When I came to Gamla...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Uppsala Restaurants

    As one of my guidebooks described Cafe Ofvandahls Hovkonditori as having "old-world charm", I decided to give it a try on my second afternoon in Uppsala. The history of the cafe dates back to the 19th century and some famous locals are said to have visited the place in the past. Cafe Ofvandahls has a wide selection of cakes, pastries and even...

  • To Skokloster

    Bålsta Transportation

    The nicest way to get to Skokloster is easily by boat from Uppsala - the m/s Carl Gustaf. But don't worry if you're out of luck - you can also catch a commuter train to Bålsta from Stockholm (just remember the extra fee if you have SL cards only, as you cross a county border) and then continue by the local Uppsala county buses to Skokloster. Pay...

  • Skokloster Castle

    Bålsta Things to Do

    This castle is one of the most well-known in Sweden. It was built in the 17th century by nobleman Carl Gustaf Wrangel, who wanted a modern palace in his childhood area, as a base for when he was in Sweden. Fortunately for us, he was rarely here as he was in charge of the Swedish part of Germany, and this means that the castle stood un-heated for...

  • Skokloster Church

    Bålsta Things to Do

    The church is built on land originally given to Cistercian nuns during the 13th century by king Canute the Long. Herman Wrangel, owner of the surrounding land and Carl Gustaf's father, had the church restored in the 17th century when the reformation had hit Sweden, and then included a side chapel for the Wrangel family which you can see on the...

  • Forsmarks Wärdshus

    Forsmark Restaurants

    Forsmark Wärdshus is situated in the historical part of Forsmark. They serve Swedish food of high quality and when I was there today’s lunch was Wallenbergare (made of ground veal, cream, eggs and bread crumbs), mashed potatoes, green peas and lingonberries, so that is what I chose to eat. It was a Saturday and the lunch was 120 SEK (May 2012)....

    Faringe Things to Do

    One of the conductors asked if we wanted to see some more steam trains at the workshop where the society Stockholm-Roslagens Järnvägar museiförening gives maintenance or renovations to the machines they have, and all of us said yes. We walked about 500m and along some of the tracks and saw some more trains, including an dold snow plow and then we...

    Following my friend's wedding in an ancient Scandic church, a warm wedding reception awaited us at the inn. Before the wedding meal was served, we toasted the bride and groom with lots and lots of champagne, laughter and wild raspberries! Somehow, the tart taste of the wild raspberries complimented the sweetness of champagne. It made a delicious...
