Umeå is young, creative, progressive and with 133,000 inhabitants, it is northern Sweden’s largest city. More than 37,000 students give the university city a youthful and international feel. Umeå’s cultural offerings cover everything from Sámi traditions and the world’s most northern Opera house to interesting museums and tasteful gastronomic surprises.

The majestic Umeälven river runs through the city, like a deep-blue, life-giving vein. The city is surrounded by unspoilt nature, dense forests, six rivers and the rolling sea. Umeå is also known as the City of Birches, because of the 3000 birch trees in the city centre.
