About Sigtuna Foundation
In Sigtuna, 35 km North of Stockholm the Sigtuna Foundation was established more than 100 years ago as a private cultural foundation with a principle aim to inspire human thought and reflection. Society has changed in many ways since then, but the Foundation’s ambition is still the very same, to offer an open space for people with different backgrounds, traditions and viewpoints who wish to meet, interact and learn from one another in atmosphere of mutual respect. Today the Sigtuna Foundation operates as a center for education and research, and also for various kinds of cultural programs. The Sigtuna Foundation with its atmospheric facilities in peaceful and scenic surroundings, offers a splendid environment to connect to the classic message of freedom and liberty, as seen through 18-19th century perspectives.
