Lunds Universitet, or the University of Lund, is one of Scandinavia's oldest and most prestigious universities. When you encounter a person in Sweden who is successful in politics, art, business or intellectual achievement, chances are decent that they studied here. It is a synonym for all the things that university life entails: intellectualism, liberalism, research, political discourse, and not least, partying as well. The university itself is huge- too spread out and massive to be visible at a single sight, it is far larger than the couple of plazas and building developments that are most obviously visible near the center of Lund, and even has affiliated faculties and branches in other cities throughout the region and the nation. The university also houses several museums, and these are likely to be of most interest to visitors not considering attending school here.
