Sweden in a nutshell


Sweden is located in Scandinavia in northern Europe. Thanks to the Gulf Stream, however, the climate is surprisingly mild, at least in the southern half of the country.

Do you like untouched nature and wandering in the mountains? Do you want to enjoy the tranquillity of beautiful beaches without tourists? Interested in the history of the Vikings? Would you like to see the Northern Lights? Or perhaps the midnight sun? All this and more can be discovered in this beautiful Nordic country.
