Umeå - European Capital of Culture
The riverfront city of Umeå, also known as the City of Birch trees, is a thriving mix of cultural diversity and offerings which bagged it the 2014 European Capital of Culture award. From learning about indigenous Sámi culture through exhibitions and shows to music festivals and fashion shows. Its proximity to the calm Umeälven river and nature means outdoor activities such as river rafting, husky sledding, skiing through nearby forests, and various wildlife safaris. Being a university town also means access to cool clubs, cafés, and nightlife that cater to a young and hip crowd from all over the world.
