Photographer's Note

In the note to my previous post mentioned that It is not often that the water of the Fyris River in central Uppsala is more of less completely calm and almost like a mirror, but it could happen particularly in autumn. And it is quite obvious that there is more than one photo opportunity This is the reflection of Västgöta Nation (the red building and Kaniken (the brown building) in the street Västra Ågatan. Like with my previous post I have flipped and rotated it 180 degrees for better comparison.

A nation is a society for students at the University of Uppsala. Västgöta Nation is a nation for students from the province Västergötland in the south western part of Sweden. There are 14 Student Nations in Uppsala. The student nations are almost as old as the University itself. Västgöta Nation that was founded in 1639 has 1 200 members. It is one of the smaller nations at Uppsala. The Nation has extensive cultural activities including three choirs, a theatre club and an orchestra.

Kaniken which was built in 1902. Between 1902 and 1973 Kaniken was a printing house run by Almqvist & Wiksell. Today it houses offices, dentists and a cinema. Further down the street there is another student nation, Norrland’s Nation.
