    The university library, to have a look at the Silver Bible. And you might also want to take a look at Gustavianum and the botanical garden.

    The Uppsala graveyard is indeed cool, it's a very weird mixture of Christian tombstones and old pagan graves with runestones. Worth a visit if you're passing by Uppsala anyway.

    For the touristy people here, I'd just recommend the area of Old Uppsala in general. A lot of old buildings, temples and ruins in that place. Also, a visit to the gardens (where the "king of flowers" did his experiments) might also be worth it.

    And, of course, the Uppsala mosque.

    If you are good by feet, I would warmly recommend the Kebnekaise, the highest mountain in Sweden (2,106 metres), near Kiruna, Lapland. It's a lovely landscap. "A mountain lodge, Kebnekaise mountain lodge (Kebnekaise fjällstation), is located at the foot of Kebnekaise, ca. 19 km, 6–7 hours from Nikkaluokta."

    Here some pictures from my visit in August 2003:

    A place I would like to recommend is the wonderful peninsula and nature reserve Kullaberg, situated in Northwestern Skåne.












    It has a dramatic and wild beauty, dominated by very beautiful greyish red gneiss rock. The sea is amazing but there are sometimes strong currents.

    You can go for long, romantic walks and then relax and watch the sunset by a fire, or you can go on more advanced and demanding hiking excursions, if you like. Some areas of Kullaberg are dangerous, so it is important to pay attention to the signs. There are also guided tours.















    If you like to dive there are almost daily diving excursions departing from Mölle, the beautiful little seaside village, from May - December, when the weather permits.


    Mölle


















    Kullaberg has many mysterious caves, and some of them you reach more easily from the sea, for example by kayak, which you can rent in Mölle. It is a nice way to explore the Kullaberg coastline.

    You can see porpoises at Kullaberg, and there are guided porpoise excursions which give you the best chance of seeing these adorable little whales.







    Here is a video taken in the vicinity of Kullaberg where you can see them following a boat.

    "På Ransvik bada karlar och fruntimmer huller om buller."


    In the late 19th century there was a scandal erupting in the little bathing spot Ransvik. Men and women could actually be seen bathing together!

    Soon the rumour spread and people came all the way from Germany and Denmark to see the sin in Ransvik. Even the Swedish king Oscar II graced it with a visit, no doubt just as curious as everyone else.


    Quite the scandal!












    Ransvik is the first place in Sweden where men and women began bathing together. There is a very nice café there.








    Ellens café, Ransvik











    In the evening, a very nice place to visit is Kullens Fyr (Kullen lighthouse).
    The lighthouse is the strongest in Scandinavia and one of the most prominent landmarks in Sweden. It is situated at the point of the Kullaberg peninsula.

    You can have a picnic here and watch the spectacular scenery of the sea and the sunset.














    The smaller western lighthouse.

    Fjärilshuset på Hagaparken

    The butterfly house in Stockholm is a beautiful "tropical paradise" inside a park, one can enjoy rare species of butterflies but also fish, birds, turtles, rabbits, etc. There's also beautiful tropical flowers and plants. In the summer one can rest on the huge grass area under the trees and take a nap, or have a picnic, etc. It's a very fun activity for families but also for people of all ages
    This is an easy destination because it's accessible by metro so it would work nicely on a day that someone's short of time.

    Gröna Lund

    This is a huge amusement park for ages 0-99, everyone will enjoy this There's an enormous variety of games to play or just sit and watch others goof around and have some fun. It is very fun for families but also for companies of friends

    Skansen Djurpark & Museum

    Of course the Skansen zoo and museum is the place to see in Stockholm. It is the biggest zoo and open museum I have been to, and it is well worth the boat trip and the money. The most interesting thing is the houses from different eras of Swedish History, it was quite an experience for me to see how the Swedes lived in different periods of time. Inside the houses there are actors dressed accordingly and engaging into activities of that period. This is overall a fantastic experience, you need a whole day to enjoy it

    If you have access to a vehicle you might consider visiting Linnaeus Hammarby and look at the home of Carl Linnaeus the father of modern taxonomy. Its a little expensive but more intimate and real than the impressive but comercial Linnaean Garden in Uppsala.

    Swedish Linnaeus Society: http://www.linnaeus.se/eng/index.html

    You might also consider Ottarsmound in Vendel which is of great historical significance but unfortunately not very known. You can book a guide from the Swedish national heritage board here: http://www.raa.se/cms/extern/se_och_...tarshogen.html

    Beautiful place!

    I think that is the kind of small dolphin i saw last month deep into the Sognefjord in Norway. I thought maybe they were baby dolphins, but it must've been Porpoises.

    In Sweden they are called 'tumlare'.

    It was probably what we call a "nise" The English name is Harbour porpoise http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nise

    I caught one fishing once, but it let go. It probably went after a fish I had on the hook. Hope it wasn't badly hurt

    Back to thread:

    I can really recommend Gamla Stan in Stockholm. A lot of nice museums around Stockholm too
