History[edit | edit source]
Uppsala was originally located a few kilometres north of its current location at a place now known as Gamla Uppsala . Today's Uppsala was then called Östra Aros, to differentiate it from Western Aros.
The city is the site of the oldest university in Scandinavia, founded in 1477. Uppsala is also the site of the 16th century Uppsala Castle.
Historical and cultural treasures were also lost, as in many Swedish cities, from demolitions during the 1960s and 1970s, but many historic buildings remain, especially in the western part of the city.
The arms bearing the lion can be traced to 1737 and have been modernised several times, most recently in 1986.
