Advent calendar 2020: 17. Uppsala, Sweden

Uppsala is the 4th largest city in Sweden, and carries special prestige: it’s the seat of the Archbishop of Uppsala, primate of the Church of Sweden (i.e. the Swedish counterpart of England’s Archbishop of Canterbury); the location of one of the two most prestigious universities in the country (the other being Lund); the religious and political centre of Sweden during the Viking Age; the tallest church in the Nordics; and the birthplace of the Celsius temperature scale.
