FUN FACTS:
- Student Clubs @ Uppsala ... "The Thirteen Student Nations" these are clubs dating back to the 17th century.  Each nation bears the name of a certain region in Sweden and historically it was a club for students from that region.
- Uppsala is only a 40 minute train ride from Sweden's capital, Stockholm.
- Uppland, the province in which Uppsala is located, is rather flat but beautiful.  Surrounded by fields, forests and lakes, the city offers great opportunities for walking, hiking, and bike riding.
