Recent Reviews in Umea

A university city and education hub of technical and medical research in Sweden, Umea has 2 universities with over 39,000 students running around their halls. Umea was the European Capital of Culture in 2014 with Riga in Latvia. The city is known for its cultural institutions and museums for the history buffs to drool over. It hosts Sweden's premier jazz event on an annual basis, has the 2nd largest art gallery in Sweden and is home to Europe's greatest museum collection of vintage guitars. This town was once the home to Stieg Larsson, author of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" fame and is a magnet for those seeking to experience the Northern Lights. Coworking spaces have opened their doors in Umea to cater to its tech savvy youth and graduates, as well as locals who are over working from a cafe scene.

A lively city with a fascinating past that was founded in 1622, you will have no lack of cafes, bars and restaurants to run to when the hunger pangs strike or you merely wish to sit and people watch as you sip espresso. There are plenty of lush green parks to meander in contemplative mode and great shopping for the shopaholics to thrash plastic cards. Sitting on the Ume River in the north east of Sweden, it has a population of 84,761 souls within the city's boundaries. Only in Sweden could a former psychiatric hospital become Sweden's largest art gallery where a biannual outdoor art exhibition is held. On summer days the nearby lake becomes a playground for people into worshipping the sun, jumping in the water or reclining in the cafe. In the winter it is still a hive of activity for ice fishing and cross-country skiing. Just outside of town you can venture to Europe's first ever moose-themed attraction, Algens Hus. If chatting to a moose is not your thing then grab a ferry, or hydro copter if the water is frozen, over to Holmon to check out its quaint homes and hire a bike for a bit of exploring.

Umea's streets are overflowing with tech savvy youth and locals. Coworking here is no drama, as there are many spaces on offer where you can hang out in collaborative bliss and get your work done.
