Welcome to Sweden
Whether you're seeking a lively metropolis, breathtaking landscapes or cultural heritage Sweden offers a wealth of inspiration. Sweden is the third largest country in Western Europe. Because of its long, narrow shape and northerly location, the landscape is highly diversified. The ever-varying Swedish coastline stretches for thousands of kilometres, from Haparanda on the Finnish border and high up in the Gulf of Bothnia, all the way to Norway and the North Sea to the west.
Stockholm is one of the world's most beautiful capitals. Built on 14 islands around one of Europe's largest and best-preserved mediaeval city centres, the Swedish capital is superbly positioned, with stunning and extremely varied scenery in every direction. Stockholm offers a wealth of museums, theatres, sights, attractions and events, whether your interest lies in history, art, opera, modern dance, traditional handicraft, contemporary design or virtually anything else.
We wish you a warm welcome to Sweden!
