Update from Lydia Zubytska, who is happy to share pictures!..
" The Swedes are very proud of Uppsala University, the oldest in the country dating to 1477.."The first picture is the view straight form the door of the institute - the largest cathedral in Scandinavia is towering over the town, built around 12th century, rebuilt after fire in 1700.

Apparently back then they had to get a permission from the Pope to start a university, but they didn't need it for long because during the reformation in 1500's  the King of Sweden declared himself the head of Swedish Church and hid from his protesting bishops in the castle (the red building). He even had to add an additional bastion with cannons called Styrbyskop to keep the angry bishops away. Now the castle hosts a Peace Museum...

I am still to visit the University Museum (building with a ball on the dome), which houses  one of the six only "Art cabinets"  that holds

1,000 objects from around the 17th century world in a series secret and visible boxes and shelves.. Kind of precursor to internet perhaps

On the flip side, the sun sets at 3.40 pm... but then everyone goes home at 5"
