    Military guard dogs in action

    Favorite thing: Every second year (odd years) the fair Stora Nolia is arranged in Umeå. This fair is the largets in the north of Sweden. During 9 days in August, about 125000 people visit Stora Nolia.

    At Nolia you will find everything from big trucks, cars, food, clothes and new inventions. Each day it's also a lot of outdoor activities and shows, like this show with military guard dogs shown on the picture.

    City musicians in Umeå

    Favorite thing: During the summer months you will find City Musicians playing on the streets in the central of Umeå. And it's not people playing to get money like in some other towns, the City Musicians are in Umeå instead employed by the community to play for the tourists and the local people.

    R��dhustorget Ume��

    Favorite thing: The Rådhustorget square in central of Umeå is the main place for street markets, speakers corner and just meeting people. The stairs with the speakers corner is called apberget (monkey mountain) and is always crowded with people on a sunny summer day.

    Alcohol is Expensive

    by Zadig Written Jan 5, 2013

    Favorite thing: I don't know if it's like this everywhere in Sweden but I purchased two 6cl shots (about 2 oz each) of Jack Daniels and the USD price turned out to be about $43.

    Fondest memory: Buy your own alcohol before you get there. Other than that it's a very nice little university town.

    Sailers ahoy!

    Fondest memory: Some notes for sailors. Sailing boats can't sail all the way up the river to Umeå because of two bridges that are not quite high enough. Here's one of them.
