One of the biggest tourist attractions in Uppsala has to be Uppsala Cathedral.
I took a day trip to Uppsala in February and the cathedral was obviously on top of the list of things I wanted to see. The cathedral was built in the 13th century and has been used for the coronation for almost every Swedish monarch since then. The cathedral is also the final resting place for famous Swedes as Gustav Vasa and Carl von Linné which means that it’s cultural value to Swedish history is pretty huge.
As I mentioned in my travel diary, I mostly accessorize the cathedral with the children’s story “Pelle Svanslös” rather than it’s historical aspect, but I really enjoyed walking around in there!
