Feeling homesick? Well, maybe you can find a little piece of your home country during Kulturnatten!
Kulturnatten is an annual celebration hosted every September in Uppsala, and as you might have guessed, the name means “culture night.” This festival is filled with music, exhibitions, dance shows, food from different parts of the world, and other events.

Here are some pictures of the events I went to during this year’s Kulturnatt. I hope you like them and that they inspire you to go out and enjoy it next year!
The Kyudo (弓道) club in Uppsala called Issha did a beautiful demonstration at Uppsala’s trädgården.
Besides kyudo, other budo (武道) demonstrations were taking place at trädgården, like akido, karate, naginata, and kendo.
At Linnaean Garden they had other activities like Bolivian music and a taiko (Japanese percussion).
Despite the rain, Stora Torget was completely full of people dancing and looking at street performers.
As for food, I finally found real-deal Mexican food! Which is an extremely difficult thing to do because Swedes seem to prefer the tex-mex style.
Hope you liked this post! I guessed that after that really long “First weeks at SLU” series it was necessary to do something more light hearted.
Make sure to leave a comment! And tell me if there is any interesting topic you would like me to write about in the future.
Have a lovely day!
