Route: Stockholm - Sigtuna - Uppsala - Vaxholm - Stockholm
Duration: 9 h
Our first stop will be at Sigtuna which has an important place in Sweden's early history. It is the oldest town in Sweden, having been founded in 980. The history of Sigtuna before the 11th century, as described in the Norse sagas and other early medieval sources, can be found in the article Old Sigtuna. Sigtuna has a picturesque medieval town centre with restaurants, cafes and small shops. The old church ruins, runic stones and the old main street (Stora gatan) are popular attractions for tourists especially in the summertime. The small streets with the low built wooden houses lead up to several handicrafts shops and the old tiny town hall. After we will drive to Uppsala.  Since 1164, Uppsala has been the ecclesiastical centre of Sweden, being the seat of the Archbishop of the Church of Sweden. Uppsala is home to Scandinavia's largest cathedral – Uppsala Cathedral. Founded in 1477, Uppsala University is the oldest centre of higher education in Scandinavia. Among many achievements, the Celsius scale for temperature was invented there. Uppsala is Sweden’s fourth largest city and an important university town just north of Stockholm. Visit the three Iron Age royal burial mounds in Old Uppsala, the cathedral (Scandinavia’s largest), the university museum (Museum Gustavianum), and the charming shops and cafés. Uppsala is also home to nobleman and famous botanist Carl von Linné’s home and gardens. Our last stop will be at Vaxholm.  The town of Vaxholm was established in 1558, when King Gustav Vasa bought some farms from Count Per Brahe the Elder. It later received rights as a merchant town (köping) and in 1652 was granted the Royal Charter. The designated coat of arms reminds of the fortifications as well as shipping industry. During the 19th century, it hardly expanded. In the 1880s, it became a popular spa town, and many wooden summer houses were built by people from Stockholm. It was not until 1912 that it allowed houses to be built from materials other than wood, giving the town a distinctive appearance. After we will back to Stockholm.
