  • Country overview minus-thick plus-thick

    Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a country in Northern Europe. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark by a bridge-tunnel across the Öresund Strait. Sweden is the largest country in Northern Europe, the third-largest country in the European Union and the fifth largest country in Europe in terms of area. The capital city is Stockholm.

    The climate is generally mild despite its northerly latitude, and Sweden often has warm continental summers. The climate and environment varies significantly from the south and north, and much of Sweden has cold and snowy winters.

    Sweden has a population of 10.3 million people, of whom approximately 2.5 million have a foreign background. It has a low population density of 22 inhabitants per square kilometre, with most people concentrated in the central and southern half of the country. The official language is Swedish, but many minority languages are spoken and 89% of Swedes say they're able to speak English.

    Sweden is one of the best countries for those who love wilderness, mountains, lakes and forests. Allemansrätten, translated as “all man's right”, means that nature is free for everyone in Sweden. You have the right to camp almost everywhere you want and forage wild fruit and berries, as long as you don't disturb others. This is the country where you can see wild reindeer, the Northern Lights, Viking remnants, fresh drinkable water in streams, massive mountains for hiking, 100,000 lakes, midnight sun, and piles of snow.

    If you're into history or architecture, there are hundreds of castles, old ships, classic Gothic structures, modern Gothenburg structures, ice hotels, medieval cities, and more to discover. Culture wise, Sweden is the third biggest exporter of music after the US and the UK, and loves a big music festival. The biggest sport in Sweden is ice hockey, and watching a match is a great experience.

    Sweden is also home to massive Christmas markets. The country is a very friendly and safe location for tourists, and Stockholm is home to Scandinavia's biggest Pride festival. If you're not one for the cold, why not visit during the warmer months and experience the Midsummer holiday traditions.

    Did you know?

    There are about 300,000 to 400,000 moose roaming freely in the woods of Sweden. Sweden is so good at recycling that the country imports waste from other countries such as Norway.
