About Umea

Umea in eastern Sweden is well known for it culture and museums. Umea is known as the "Town of Silver Birches" and is located at the mouth of the Ume river. After the Great Fire of Umea in 1888, the entire city was rebuilt and thousands of birch trees were planted lining the streets.

The Bildmuseet museum is one of the main attractions in Umea. Exhibiting contemporary art from Sweden and around the world, you can experience paintings, sculptures, graffiti, design and architecture with around 15 unique exhibitions each year. The museum is open throughout the year and entry is free of charge.

Umea was awarded the title of Capital of European Culture in 2014, and for good reason. A large portion of the population is made up of students at Umea University, the largest institute in Sweden. The youth in the city has certainly had an impact on the city making it a unique attraction for people from around the world.
