The Royal Mounds of Gamla Uppsala.
It is only a short bus ride from the town centre to Gamla Uppsala (Old Uppsala) but it is a journey that will take you far, far back in time. Set in the tranquillity of the glorious Uppland countryside, there is an almost magic atmosphere here at the Mounds of the Kings. Strolling round the site, one can sense the presence of the ancient warriors who once lived here. It is one of the most intriguing, atmospheric Viking sites in Scandinavia.
