Invitation

You are warmly invited to take part in the Eighth International Conference on Urban History to be held in Stockholm 30th August – 2nd September 2006.

The European Association for Urban History was established in 1989 with the support of European Union. Conferences are organised every two years. These biennial conferences provides a multidisciplinary forum for historians, sociologists, geographers, anthropologists, art and architectural historians, economists, ecologists, planners and all others working on different aspects of urban history. The invitation includes all scholars who made urban history a distinctive and innovative subject.


Welcome to one of world’s most beautiful cities.
Stockholm is a modern capital with a flourishing life, rich in culture and history as well as in cutting edge research and technology. It is an easily accessible city where almost everything is within walking distance. The Swedish capital successfully combines an interesting past and an exciting future.

A walk through the city offers the narrow alleys and medieval atmosphere of the Old Town as well as the concrete and glass architecture of the modern city. There is a rich supply of museums of all kinds as well as art galleries. You can choose from over one hundred museums and attractions with world-class exhibitions. There is plenty of opportunity for shopping and most shops are open every day. Here you can find the latest in fashion and famous Swedish design.

In Stockholm, nature is always close at hand. As the city is built on 14 islands, the water is always present, and just outside the city the archipelago of 24,000 islands is waiting to be explored.
