    What to Expect from Expat Life in Uppsala?

    If you want an authentic taste of Swedish culture through the ages, you could do a lot worse than the city of Uppsala; once a major Viking stronghold, the city also has strong associations with medieval Christianity and is now a key educational center, thanks to Uppsala University, Sweden's oldest formally recognized higher education facility. Located just 71 km north of Stockholm and with excellent public transport links across the country, Uppsala is also a major player in medical research, with a number of facilities drawing students and professionals from all over the world. While it lacks the cosmopolitan feel of Stockholm and Gothenburg, Uppsala certainly makes up for any perceived shortcomings in history and personality, making it one of Scandinavia's most charming and culture-rich destinations.
