In 2014 Umeå – a fairly small university town in the north of Sweden – was named the European Capital of Culture. Numerous events mesmerized visitors with Umeå’s capacity and extraordinary eye for entertainment and cultural heritage. In the aftermath of the success of 2014, Umeå is now preparing to keep on the brilliance with a vast selection of cultural activities and experiences. Visitors have the opportunity to explore one of the finest private electric guitar collections in the world, visit the first museum dedicated to women’s history in Sweden and discover Swedish cuisine at its best. The Capital of Culture may be re-designated, but the highly cultural spirit in Umeå lives on.
