Here's the deal. During my city visits, even if there is no castle or church on my must-see list, when I get there, I usually check those objects out. You never know. Here, in Uppsala, the castle was one of the top three things that I had to see, although I knew that it is nothing spectacular in the architectural sense. Nevertheless, Uppsala castle was a sign of power of newly reborn Swedish kingdom in the 16th century. By the order of Gustav Vasa the castle came to life and watched his son's fall.
