Capital of Culture Event - Umea 2014

This event is connected to Umeå being the Cultural Capital of 2014. The event will take place in Umeå centre and its surroundings the 2nd of August 2014, between 10.00 and 23.00.

We are planning activities for all cachers – newbies as well as more advanced with a number of arrangements around the day of the event, both Friday and Sunday.

Umeå has a lot to offer, besides caching with nearly 1000 caches today; a lovely and exciting nature with an elk farm, climbing, river rafting and canoeing, just to mention a few things. This is also the home of celebrities such as Stieg Larsson and Lisa Miskovsky. The Swedish Championship of Athletics will take place here (at the same time as the event). Here you can also find the Concert Hall with its symphony orchestra, the old museum area of Gammlia with, among other things, Samish Camps. In our town, you can also find the Bildmuseet (a center for contemporary art and visual culture), a Sculpltural Park, Design- and art campus, the University of Umeå and the recently inaugurated Museum of Guitars, unique in Sweden.

We in the team arranging this will do our best to make this an unforgettable weekend in the light summer nights of Northern Sweden. Please write in your will attend-log how many physical persons that are attending.
