Uppsala is the fourth largest city in Sweden, with a steadily increasing population of around 190,000. The city retains the charm of a small town while offering major urban opportunities and attractions. Anywhere you look, Uppsala is teeming with liveliness. Uppsala is considered to be the religious and historic centre of Sweden. The city has a solid base of knowledge and tradition from which to progress. At the same time, the atmosphere is youthful. The 40,000 university students are a significant factor to this exuberance.  
Uppsala University was founded in 1477 and is a leading research university. Among the many world-renowned scientists from Uppsala we could mention Carl Linnaeus, creator of the plant sexual system, and Anders Celsius, who developed the Centigrade system.
One of the attractions is the great University Library building, Carolina Rediviva, with the Carolina library for the humanities, theology and sociology and also the famous silver bible.
Other attractions include the Uppsala Castle dating back from the mid 1500ís with the Hall of State and the Uppsala Cathedral - the largest cathedral in the Nordic countries.
The city’s geographical location with only 30 minutes to Stockholm-Arlanda international airport and 40 minutes to Stockholm, the capital, has made Uppsala an attractive place for meetings and to establish new companies. Campus Uppsala with more than 300 companies specializing in biomedicine, IT, environmental studies, energy research, materials science, food provision and management, offers a modern and expansive environment for development and enterprise.
