She also appeared in the Metropolitan Opera's inaugural performance on October 22, 1883 in Gounod's ''Faust (Faust (opera))''. Modern Sollentuna evolved around the railway between Uppsala and Stockholm, inaugurated in 1866. In fact, five of the eight districts that make up Sollentuna today, correspond to railway stations, now operated by commuter trains. From south to north: Helenelund, Tureberg (railway station is named Sollentuna), Häggvik, Norrviken and Rotebro. Viby is an extension of Norrviken and the 2 remaining districts - Edsberg (Edsberg, Sollentuna) and Sjöberg - are to be found along the road to Danderyd. Other roads into Sollentuna includes the road from Kallhäll to Rotebro and the motorway (E4) that approximates the same route as the railway. The main northern railway (rail transport) line, ''Stambanan genom övre Norrland'', ends in Boden. By rail, Boden is connected to Luleå, and, on the same line, Uppsala, Stockholm, and finally Bräcke in the south. Munthe studied medicine in Uppsala, Montpellier, and Paris (where he was a student of Charcot (Jean-Martin Charcot)), graduating M.D. in 1880 at the age of 23. Although his thesis was on the subject of gynecology and obstetrics, Munthe was deeply impressed by the pioneering work in neurology done by Professor Jean-Martin Charcot, having attended his lectures at the Salpêtrière hospital. A third attempt made in 1520 with a large army of French, German and Scottish mercenaries proved successful. Sture was mortally wounded at the Battle of Bogesund, on 19 January, and the Danish army, unopposed, was approaching Uppsala, where the members of the Swedish Privy Council (Privy Council of Sweden), or ''Riksråd'', had already assembled. The councillors consented to render homage to Christian on condition that he gave a full indemnity for the past and a guarantee that Sweden should be ruled according to Swedish laws and custom; and a convention to this effect was confirmed by the king and the Danish Privy Council on 31 March. birth_date WikiPedia:Uppsala Dmoz:Regional Europe Sweden Uppsala_County Localities Uppsala Commons:Category:Uppsala
