If you want to shop, eat, or just sit back with a cup of coffee and watch the people passing by, the city center is the place to be. There is an international atmosphere in downtown Uppsala. Almost every weekend there is something going on, from sidewalk musicians to dance groups performing for your entertainment. There are stores galore, with plenty of places to shop whether it be in one of the numerous clothing boutiques or styling salons, or visit a gift shop to find just the right souvenir. After the shops close for the evening, several pubs and bars open their doors, enabling you to meet the locals and dance the night away.
