Day 6 – Uppsala

Today we traveled north of Stockholm to visit the burial mounds in Gamla Uppsala.  We also visited the little church near the mounds and the cathedral in Uppsala.

Cathedral in Uppsala (we couldn't go in because a service was starting)

 

...but who cares that the church is closed as long as we could see the rune stones

 

Uppsala is also home of one of the oldest universities in Europe
