Около 1270-та година започва строежът на новата катедрала в Остра Арос, няколко километра на юг по реката от тогавашното селище, днешната Стара Упсала, а Остра Арос се преименува на Упсала. Катедралата е построена в готически стил, с високи сводове и големи прозорци. Предполага се, че в края на 13-ти век от Франция са пристигнали каменоделци и че северната порта е тяхно дело. Осветена е чак през 1435, 165 години след началото на строежа на третия ден от Петдесетница, 7-ми юни. Първата кула още не е била завършена, тъй като върховете са били сменяни няколко пъти. Големи щети е имало след три пожара през 1473, 1572 и 1702. Първата основна голяма реставрация се извършва през 1885-1893 г. от архитекта Хелго Зетервал, когато се поставят сегашните върхове на кулите (117,8 м), поставят се нови картини по подовете и нови стъклописи. По време на реставрацията през 1971-76 се почистват картините по подовете, пет от малките олтари получават нови мокети, а главният олтар нова украса. Снимката се казва Упсала, защото катедралата е един от трите най-важни символа (заедно с двореца и университета). Катедралата и дворецът са първите и последните сгради, които се виждат, когато се пристига или заминава от града, а двете кули могат да бъдат видени от почти всяко кътче в самата Упсала. *** The Cathedral in Uppsala was begun 1270 and the construction continued 165 years, when it was officially inaugurated June 7th. There were two major reastaurations and the towers were changed a few times. The Cathedral, together with the Castle are two of the three most important symbols of the city, being the first buildings to be seen when you come to town and the last ones when leaving.
Statue of Jakob Ulvsson at Uppsala Cathedral
Made by foje64
Jakob Ulvsson Archbishop of Sweden 1469–1515 and the founder of Uppsala University. Jakob Ulvsson came from a noble family background in Uppland and studied at the universities in Rostock (where he got a bachelor of arts in 1458/1459) and Paris (magister 1460). He spent the years 1465–1470 in Rome and was meanwhile appointed Canon of Uppsala in 1465 and Archdeacon of Växjö in 1468. Despite King Karl Knutsson wanting to make one of his own relatives Archbishop of Uppsala, Jakob Ulvsson was appointed achbishop by the pope in 1469 and ordained in Rome in 1470, after which he returned to Uppsala. In the conflicts between the Danish king Christian I of Denmark and the Swedish regent Sten Sture, Jakob took a mediating position, trying as far as possible to avoid open warfare, especially in Uppland. After Sten Sture's victory in the Battle at Brunkeberg in 1471, the situation stabilized and Jakob participated in the work of the privy council. He is usually regarded is the main initiator of the university in Uppsala, which was founded after having received papal approval in the form of a bull of Sixtus IV dated February 27, 1477. Jakob Ulvsson was also appointed first chancellor of the university. His good relations with Sten Sture later deteriorated with the regent's generally worsened relations to the rest of the council, and the archbishop spent a large part of the time in his fortress Stäket. In 1497, he and the rest of the council accepted king Hans as king of Sweden. He resigned from the archbishopric in 1515. He remained in Sweden until his death in 1521.

The Cathedral of Uppsala (Swedish) Uppsala domkyrka

View On Black I have been debating if i should upload this photo because it was taken with my little Fuji Finepix. I tweaked it as best i could in lightroom and applied a photo a warming filter to it to try and take out some of the over exposed parts. I still didnt like it so i played with it a bit more and im pleased with this result. It is what it is. It was taken in Uppsala Sweden. Located centrally in the city of Uppsala, Sweden, dates back to the late 13th century and at a height of 118.7 m is the largest church building in Scandinavia. Originally used for coronations of the Swedish regent, it is now the seat of the Archbishop of Sweden. More here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uppsala_Cathedral
In a Moment, at the Crossroads
Made by Matt Redmond
In a moment, at the crossroads, she sees a glimpse of all that matters. In a moment, at the crossroads, she sees a glimpse of all that was. She sees a glimpse of all that is. She sees a glimpse of all that is to be. She sees a glimpse, and with that glimpse alone, she is left to choose. She is left to choose the fate of the world. For whatever choice she chooses will forever change everything. Whatever choice she chooses will alter the fate of man. All of destiny lies in what she chooses. So choose. And choose wisely, my dear. For it all depends on you. Now choose.

This wax figure is supposed to depict Mary Magdalene. I reckon the title gave that much away. She is standing behind the chancel in Uppsala Cathedral; most people flinch a bit when they first see her, not sure whether it's a real person. Being an atheist I have a good answer ready, and not just concerning the wax figure (which is absolutely real as a wax figure). I adore this church however. To my knowledge, it's the most beautiful church in all of Sweden.

Angels of Evanescence

I took this picture (or these pictures) during last summer; it's from . I hope my post-processing sets the proper mood. The angels are part of historical king Gustav Vasa's grave monument, but I don't know anything in particular about them. See also: DJ Angel.

The armour looked interesting. The skull/crossed bones is a common motif from the 16th and 17th centuries in Swedish churches; I saw it in Lund, too, though these in Uppsala were usually much more lifelike.
